The Boston College Career Center changed its career fair format this year, introducing several industry-specific fairs to better connect students and prospective employers, said Francis Adjorlolo, associate director of employer engagement at the Career Center.
Students logged into Handshake, Boston College’s new career management platform, on Thursday and searched for companies they were interested in and connected with recruiters as part of the annual fall career fair, which was held virtually this year.
The Career and Internship Fair will be held virtually this year on Sept. 17. Information can be found on BC’s new online platform Handshake.
“We have to fight against this perception that this event (the fall career fair) is not just for certain students,” Joe Du Point, head of the Career Center, said.
Boston College students sought insight on job and internship opportunities from employers Thursday at the annual Career Fair in Conte Forum.
