Frequently asked questions

  • Which platform are you using?
  • We use 6Connex, a secure, cloud-based virtual event platform that is ISO 27001 certified. This provides an immersive and interactive environment that enables attendees to network with each other, participate in live Q&As, link to on-demand content both within and outside of the environment, and more. 6Connex provides an optional system check link before the conference to check your network and firewall compatibility.
  • Do attendees need to join the event for the full 3 hours?
  • You do not have to stay for the whole event. We’ve designed this format to allow for ample time to visit with hiring recruiters, and were intentional about limiting scheduled live content/ensuring that the majority of content is on-demand so that you can experience the event according to your own needs and priorities.   You also have the option to log out and log back into the Virtual Career Fair at any time during the 3 hours.
  • How should I dress?
  • The event includes both on-camera and off-camera opportunities for interactions, so it is up to you how you are most comfortable presenting yourself to recruiters and to fellow attendees! Business casual should work for all types of engagement.
  • Will any sessions be available post-event?
  • We encourage you to visit the Conferences for Women’s Career Hub for additional valuable content!
  • Can my organization participate in the Virtual Career Fair as a recruiter?
