How will the Virtual Fair Work?

Interested participants must register to attend (registration link can be found at the bottom of this page). Once registration is submitted, the participant will receive an email with the virtual fair link. That link will allow the participant to join any of the above sessions at the given times.

When the participant registers, he or she will indicate what program or programs they have an interest in. If that program is represented at the virtual fair, the participant will be pre-assigned to that program's session. If not, the participant will join the main meeting room to chat with the school recruiter. If the participant is interested in more than one program, they will return to the main meeting room after chatting with the first program and indicate in the chat box that they would like to join a different program's session.

If a participant does not know what program they might be interested in, they can join the main meeting room and then ask the moderator to move them to a program session.

Participants will need to join the fair with a computer.

Participants can "meet" with as many programs as they would like during each two-hour time frame. They just need to let the moderator know when they are ready to move on to the next one.

Who should attend?

Any and all students and professionals interested in pursuing graduate education or professional school (such as medical, optometry or nursing programs) should attend the virtual Graduate Program Recruitment Fair. It is an opportunity to explore your options and determine which UAB program can help you achieve your academic and career goals. It is never too early to start planning; if you're a sophomore or beyond, start now. This is the perfect way to dip your toes into the world of graduate education.

Why should you attend?

Learn: Have your questions answered quickly and thoroughly. The virtual fair provides the perfect opportunity to ask about all aspects of a graduate or professional program, from mentoring and lab space to research opportunities. You can explore a number of different programs, including those that may not be on your list.

Network: At the virtual fair, you will have the chance to interact with program directors, faculty, students, and staff from more than 50 UAB graduate and professional programs. Relationships are the catalyst for success, and networking allows you the time to develop these valuable relationships that could benefit you over the life of your career.

Tips for Attending a Virtual Fair

  • Research the schools and programs represented ahead of time, and prepare questions to ask the faculty and staff attending.
  • Put your best foot forward by having a resume ready to email in case one of the program representatives asks for it.
  • Are you ready to answer questions from our faculty and staff? Think about and rehearse answers to common questions that you can anticipate.
  • It is important that you share your video during the virtual fair. The program representatives want to see with whom they are interacting.
  • Remember a good first impression is important. Dress casually, but appropriately for the virtual fair. They can still see you, as well as your environment. Keep your background clear of distractions.
  • Lighting should come from in front of you or from the side, in order to best light your face.
  • Look at your webcam, not at the screen.
  • Use gestures and mannerisms that you would typically use in person.
