Tips for navigating virtual events/fairs

  1. Use first name and last initial to protect your privacy when using platforms like Zoom
  2. Keep yourself muted unless speaking
  3. Activating the video is a personal choice – if you choose not to go live you can use a profile picture as an option
  4. If you enter using video, test your lighting and background. Lights should be in front of the computer for optimal viewing. Going live almost feels like allowing someone into your home so feel free to download a generic background to use or opt for a plain wall behind you
  5. Craft a brief 30-second introduction to use when asked. It is also important to craft a brief statement of how you are doing personally – many people are asking about your well-being before jumping into the professional questions and you do not want to be caught off guard
  6. Craft or curate the questions you want to ask prior to the event so you ensure you make efficient use of the time you have with the professional
