You will need to upload your resume, a gallery thumbnail image, and any portfolio materials that you wish to share.

Interviews:
Interviews can happen in two ways

  1. You reach out to a company
    Once you are registered, you will receive a link to view the hiring companies including contact information, job postings, and general information about their organization. Similarly to a traditional in-person year, you can identify a company you wish to interview with, locate their scheduling link on their page, and set up a time and date to talk.
  2. The company reaches out to you
    Hiring companies that are participating in Theatre Job Fair will also receive your materials and will be able to reach out to their selected candidates for interviews.

Please Note: Please note: Theatre Job Fair is happening separately from other convention events, as described above. You will not find interview information on the virtual convention platform.
