By mid-July, information will be available on how to create your virtual booth. Brazen provides excellent virtual training as well as digital resources on how to build and manage your booth’s content. All this information will be provided through email.

Your virtual booth will be visible to students as soon as you receive your Brazen details. For this reason, we encourage you to add content as soon as you can, so that students may review it and start thinking of questions to ask during their chat with you. On the day of the hirewesternu VIRTUAL Career Fair, the option to chat will appear for both recruiters and students from 10AM - 3PM EST (it will not appear before this).

Deadline

The official registration deadline is SEPTEMBER 28, 2021, however booths may sell-out before then.

To ensure your spot, register early!

Cancellation and Refund Policy

Cancellations will not be accepted verbally, and must be emailed to: drestre@uwo.ca

Should an organization be eligible for a refund, the cancellation fee will be deducted from the registration cost, and the remaining amount will be returned within 5 business days.

How Does the Virtual Fair Work?

Brazen is unique in its uncomplicated design. Once students login, they toggle to the event lobby, which is where employer booths appear. They click on the booth that interests them, explore the content in the booth, and on the day of the event select whether they would like to get in line to chat.

Chats are 1-1, 10 minutes in length (a timer will appear) and can be text or video-based. You as the recruiter choose the format, although some students may request a certain format based on their needs. After 10 minutes is up, you may choose to extend the chat by 2 minutes. You can also end the chat early. While chatting, a student's name and email will appear, so that you may record this information for follow-up later. Students may also choose to have their Linkedin url and resume visible to you, however this is not mandatory.
