Preparing for the Virtual Expo: Using Gather.Town

This Fall’s Career Expo & VCEA Technical Fair will provide an engaging and interactive platform for you to connect with employers. Gather.Town will simulate an actual fair and provide this engagement in a virtual setting. To prepare for the event, we have a few intros and overviews and some essential tips for success. 

What You Need

  • Desktop/laptop with a microphone and camera
  • A web browser (Chrome or Firefox recommended)
  • If in a public space, headphones/headset

Gather.Town’s mobile interface does not allow for full functionality. If you do not have the computer equipment to be fully present in the virtual setting, the Academic Success & Career Center will have computers (equipped with webcams and headsets) available. Just check-in at the front desk.

If you are having technical difficulties or need help navigating Gather.Town, please use the zoom link below. IT staff will be present to help answer your questions.

Helpful Tips

  • Include your major in your Avatar’s Name. For example: “Amanda Smith – Chemical Engineering”
  • Gather allows for screen sharing. Have your materials ready to share (resume, portfolios, work samples, etc.)
  • Dress to impress. While virtual, this is still the first impression with a potential employer. Make sure you look the part!
