Spring 2021 Virtual Resume Review Day

Wednesday, February 17, 2021 - 11:00am to 2:00pm



UNH Get Hired Series:
Resume Review Day with Industry Experts

What is Resume Review Day?

This event brings employers, hiring managers, and alumni together virtually to offer 1-on-1 resume review to students from all majors and with all career interests. This is not an interview or formal application for a specific job/internship within one of the companies, but an incredible opportunity for students to get tips and feedback on their resume from industry experts that look at thousands each year.

Employers will begin registering in December 2020.

How do I share my resume with Employers?

This semester, you will have two options for sharing your resume for feedback:

  1. Share your screen. Have a copy of your resume open on your computer during the event and share your screen with the employer.
  2. Create a shareable link. Share the link with the employer in the chat box of your 1:1 meeting.
Whichever method you choose for getting your resume in front of the eyes of the experts, be sure to take detailed notes on the feedback you receive!

Pro-Tips for During the Event

  • To Cancel a Session
  • If you can’t make a session that you've registered for, we highly suggest you cancel the session instead of just skipping it
Virtual Backgrounds
  • Handshake Fairs do NOT have virtual backgrounds, so if using video to chat, ensure your dorm/room background is appropriate for speaking with a potential employer
Text Chats 
  • Text written in the chat during a session is NOT saved
  • Copy any contact information or details the recruiter has shared with you before leaving the session!
