It’s simple:

1) Register.
2) Once the event begins, select which organizations interest you. Our system will let you know as soon as that recruiter can talk to you.
3) Chat instantly in a private booth one-on-one about your background, experience and opportunities at their company or organization in a timed, text based chat.
