Where and when will the list of attending companies be published?
The link of companies attending will be posted 2 weeks prior to the fair.
What is the dress code for the Career Fair?
The dress code is Business Professional. Examples of this can be found under the student information page. (Even for the Virtual Career Fair, it is still necessary to wear Business Professional.)
Who can attend the Career Fair?

How do I update my profile for the Virtual Career Fair?
From your HireAggies homepage, select My Account, Academic, and complete the information on that page.
Can I update my profile picture?
No. Picture functionality has been disabled.
Will there be companies in attendance that are looking to hire international students?
Yes. Please check the list of companies attending on our website here 2 weeks prior to the fair to see which majors and international 'status' companies are seeking.
Will recruiters contact me or do I have to join a platform for a video chat?
Employers will invite you to connect with them. You have to have to be active in the virtual platform in order to get that alert. You will then also need access to Zoom, WebEx, or whatever platform the employer will be using. We suggest launching those platforms via your browser.
How do I find contact information from the Career Fair after the fair?
From the HireAggies homepage, select Events / Career Fairs / Past, and then select the career fair you're looking for. Select the employers tab then search for and select the company. Select View Full Profile. Select Contacts.
What happens when a student clicks "View All Jobs"? Does it take them out of the Virtual Career Fair? Do they lose their place in the queues they are in?
From Symplicity support: When a student clicks "View All Positions" on an employer's profile in a Career Fair, they won't lose their place in the queue. A new tab will open on their navigator with the "View All Positions" info page.
I am not getting notification banners and/or notification audio/sound.
Make sure to disable pop-up blockers and ensure the sound on your device is enabled. If you have multiple websites open, make sure they are not overlapping the event screen.
What browsers work best with HireAggies?
Use Chrome or Firefox first. Safari is compatible. Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer are NOT compatible with HireAggies,
How do I pick a specific recruiter to talk to?
1 on 1 chats are on a first come first serve basis, so there is no way to handpick which recruiter within a certain company that you speak with.
What do I do if the lines are really long?
Try to join lines based on the wait time. You can join up to 3 queues at a time, so if you pick one that's 15 minutes, 30 minutes, and 1 hour then you won't have to wait too long between conversations.
What if I need to go to class but don't want to lose my spot in line?
You can set your status to "Busy" on HireAggies, and the representative will skip over you in line. Once you change your status back to "online", you will reclaim your spot in line.
What if I am talking to one representative and I reach the top of another company's line?
Symplicity will change your status as "Busy" while you are chatting with a company, so you will be skipped over in line. Once your other chat ends, you will reclaim your spot in line.
