    How can someone access the “career fair prep kit” that is advertised for the GovLoop virtual career fair? I signed up for the career fair but did not see a way to obtain this information. In addition, is there a list of employers who will have exhibits at the career fair? I am a novice blogger on career development for science professionals and would like to promote the GovLoop virtual career fair to others. Thanks in advance for any help!

    Thanks for the quick response and for all the great information! Is it okay to share some of these resources on my http://sciencementor.wordpress.com blog?

    I am putting together a post on how to prepare for a virtual career fair based on my past experience with another organization’s career fair that used the same software application. I noticed that is was useful to be able to log into the career fair before the day of the event to see what employers would potentially be present, so you can research the employers. Is this employer list available for your career fair?

    Perfect – feel free to share. Still finalizing the full list so that’s why delay right now.
