Virtual info chats are informal, 15-minute 1:1 conversations between a student and an employer, hosted on Handshake via integrated video. These chats provide a quick way for you to connect with employers in a less intimidating setting to get an inside look at company culture and available opportunities. All employers are able to offer virtual info chats within job postings and via messages.
This new way of interacting on Handshake is designed to make the networking process easier by connecting students directly with employers for career conversations. In order for the right employers to find you, be sure to have a completed and visible profile, along with a visible resume. You’ll want to take care to ensure you show up well and make a positive impression, as employers take even these brief interactions into consideration when evaluating candidates.
