What to expect
How are the information sessions structured?
We’ve recommended this structure: up to 15 minutes for a brief presentation followed by at least 10 minutes for Q&A.
How should I prepare?
- Research the employer(s) before the session.
- Apply for the posted position(s) on WITworks so the employer has your resume.
- Prepare a few questions to ask during the Q&A. Check out our resource on “Questions to Ask Employers at Virtual Events.”
When will I get the virtual meeting information?
This virtual meeting details will be available within the employer event on WITworks on the day of the session. On the day of the event login to WITworks and navigate to Events > Virtual Expos > [your chosen employer] from the left side menu.
Additionally, you will receive an email from CO-OPS + CAREERS on June 7 with the list of sessions you’ve RSVP’d to and a reminder about how to access each session from WITworks. Please do not join the session outside of your reserved time.
What virtual meeting software will be used?
We’ve recommended that companies use Zoom, however some employers use different software. Make sure you are familiar with platforms like Skype, Teams, GoToMeeting, and WebEx. This is good practice for virtual interviewing, where you will be expected to use whichever platform the employer uses.
Below are links to test the most popular video meeting platforms:
