This event is free to attend.


The Biola University Career Center is excited to invite you to our virtual Career Expo from September 22 - 24, 2020.

    Employers and Registration

    Want to feel confident at Biola’s Career Expo?

    Do you know what type of candidates employers are looking for? Candidates like you! Candidates who are emotionally intelligent, hardworking, critical thinkers, problem solvers, and culture creators. Employers are waiting for you to tell them how you have used all these skills and more. Start by reviewing the resources below to prepare for speaking to employers and understanding how to navigate Handshake.

    How does a virtual career fair work?

    Virtual career fairs cut down on waiting in lines and help you focus on directly connecting with employers.

    • Each employer will set up 30-minute Information Sessions throughout the day. These will be virtual group sessions to learn about their company and the roles they are recruiting for.
    • You can also schedule 10-minute 1:1 sessions with employers.
    • You can pre-sign up for virtual sessions OR drop into one the day of the expo.
    • Finally, you can use Handshake to message employers before and after the expo.
