“My first virtual career fair experience was exceptional. The platform we used through HireFresnoState was extremely easy to navigate as a first time user and I sincerely appreciated the one-on-one time we were allotted with each industry of our choosing. We did not have to waste any time in conversation discussing resources as they were conveniently located within each of the booths and easy to access before, during, and after each call. I was also very impressed by the actual video chat system utilized as it provided us with a countdown to keep track of time, signal strength and test call capabilities!"

— Current Student - Animal Science Major at California State University, Fresno
