How do I register as a student?
You must use your Penn State log-on information
Choose the 'Sign up with Penn State' button on the registration page to use your existing credentials and single sign-on
Gmail doesn't count
Even if your Penn State email is linked to a Gmail account that doesn't count as your Penn State credentials. Make sure you use your official email address.
Already used Brazen? Update your info
Update your email address to your Penn State account or Friends of Penn State account and log-on using those credentials for the fair.
Need a Penn State account as an alumnus or guest?
Create a Friends of Penn State account before the event and use that to register.
Complete the registration process
Once you sign up with your Penn State access information you'll need to complete the Brazen registration form.
Who will be participating?
Research the organizations attending. (This list will be continually updated as employers register, beginning in September.)
Explore Nittany Lion Careers and the organization websites to find job postings for the organizations that will be in attendance. Use this information to develop your target list. Tell organizations how your skills, experience, and interests match what they look for.
In the virtual event, approach as many organizations as possible. You never know what you will learn or who you will meet that will lead to an opportunity.

30 Second Introduction
What to wear
Even in this virtual environment, employers tell us they want to see you dressed professionally. Business suits are suggested. Clothing should be clean, ironed and appropriate.
Using the Brazen platform
Check Your Tech
Chrome is the recommended browser for Brazen.
To avoid technical issues during the event, run these service checks in advance and reach out to Brazen if issues are detected:
In Brazen, attendees will browse virtual booths and join video/audio chats from any device. Each chat lasts around 10 minutes and students can place themselves in line in multiple booths, but will only be connected with one chat at a time.
The Brazen Help Center has many resources, articles and FAQs to help with technical questions and tips for using the Brazen platform. During the event, real-time technical assistance is available by emailing [email protected].
