Frequently Asked Questions

So is this Job Fair in person or online?

It's completely online friend. The Pipeline Livestream is hosted on our NEWS PAGE, but the meat and potatoes of the Job Fair is on the Job Fair Discord Server.

Do I need to sign up before the event?

Yes it's recommended. That way we can gauge how many people are coming, AND give you updates and details that you couldn't get without signing up. So please register through Eventbrite.

How does it work if I want to visit a booth?

You must pop into the Job Fair Discord Server and then join a voice channel waiting room for the studio you'd like to chat with. So for instance if you want to talk to Nelvana, join their Nelvana Waiting Room🐺, and wait your turn to get a one on one meeting with Judy and the gang.

What's the difference between a Job Fair Booth and the Portfolio Review Zone?
