After the in-person Spring Careers Fair event on Wednesday 8 February from 11am-3pm, the Spring Fair continues online from 3.30pm-6pm via the MyFuture platform, where you Queen's University students will have the opportunity to join a one to one video chat queue or attend a group video chat with your target employers.

Student Guide to online element of the Spring Fair

Prepare for the Fair:

Click on "meet the employers":

Browse the employer booths to check on who is coming, star your favourites and set up your profile.

Check & edit your profile:

Tip: Upload your CV via your profile to share it with relevant employers.

During the online element of the Fair:

Chat with Employers via live video chats

You have two options:

1. Group Chats: Just click on Group Chat for the relevant employer in the list to view instructions/click on meeting links.

2. One to One Chats: Some employers are offering both one to one and group chats.

You can join up to three one to one chats at a time.

Make sure to check your progress/wait time through one to one queues.

Tips For Managing your Progress in One to One Queues

1. Join queues with different wait times.

MyFuture will keep your place in each of these for you. When you see your wait time is down to 5 minutes - you are next and could be called in at any moment! You can check on your progress up through one to one queues via the tab beside "Meet the Employer Exhibitors".

2. Stay alert to a queue where the wait time is down to 5 minutes or less.

When the employer is ready, you will see a "come in and meet me" invite from them on your screen in their queue. Just click it and follow the join instructions to take you into the one to one virtual meeting room.

3. Warning: If you do not accept/click on the invite within two minutes, the employer will move on to the next student in the queue.

4. You can also manage your time by attending a group chat if you are waiting for a one to one queue with a wait time of more than 20 minutes.

Other Tips:

You can also browse the employers job adverts and profile via their virtual booth (including during the days before the fair goes live).
