Listening to student feedback, for the first time in its nine-year history the 2022 Tech Fair will be held over two days instead of one. So, if your lunchtime schedule (11am – 1pm) is full on Wednesday, Feb. 23, you can stop by on Thursday, Feb. 24. This year’s experiential Tech Fair focuses on helping students successfully get to the next level.  Whether that means your first full-time job up the career ladder or a coveted internship, stop by Tech Fair and let the IT experts support your goals! 

UFIT is partnering with the Career Connections Center (C3) to enhance the IT expertise offered in the event tents. Some of the ways students can benefit from attending are:

 1. ePortfolios

Get expert assistance and recommendations on which app to use to build your professional ePortfolio. In addition to learning how to best showcase your skills and experience technically, our partnership with the C3 means that a content expert will also be on hand to answer your questions and offer suggestions for making your ePortfolio stand out to recruiters.

2. LinkedIn Learning

Always a part of Tech Fair, this year the LinkedIn Learning tent will feature an education technology expert to help you build a course list to assist you on your professional journey. In addition, we’ll have a curated list available that focuses on building a LinkedIn profile to get you noticed, using LinkedIn to network, and videos to help prepare for an interview. UFIT provides LinkedIn Learning free to students, faculty, and staff.

3. GitHub

Learn from UFIT’s lead research computing trainer how to:

  • Set up a GitHub Profile page
  • Host a free webpage at github.io with your resume

Students will also get free GitHub cheat sheets!

The 2022 Tech Fair will also have experts to explain how AI is used to scan and review resumes. You’ll also be able to comment on the future of UF classroom design and enter a raffle for great prizes. More information about Tech Fair will be posted regularly on UFIT’s Twitter and Instagram channels.
