Frequently asked questions

What should I have handy during the virtual program?

Nothing is required, but we encourage you to take notes using a notebook to avoid distractions during the virtual program and the interviews following the program. We do recommend that you join the event via your computer/laptop. We will be playing an interactive game during the program, so please have your cell phone charged and close by during this portion of the event.

What should I wear?

We encourage you to look your best during the event and the interviews to follow. We are expecting each of you to have your camera on during the program and your interviews to follow. For the gents, slacks and button-up shirt will do the trick - tie is optional if you're feeling extra snazzy. For the gals, pants or skirt and a blouse or a nice dress is perfect! As long as your shoulders are covered, you're covered.

How can I best prepare for the day?

Be open minded for the event, especially since the virtual event is brand new this year. Prepare some questions to ask the CBIZ professionals during the virtual program and for the interviews following the program. Please note that your assigned campus recruiter will be sending you a form prior to the event if you already have questions in mind. Do your research! Check out the CBIZ website to be educated on the company and the specific office whose event you are attending.

What should I do if I am having IT issues either before/during the virtual program or before/during the interviews?
