Career Fair Tips

Career Fair success lies in effective preparation, and communication. Make sure to     research the employers you want to visit: learn about them, the positions they’re looking to fill, and what type of candidates they’re looking for.

Tip:  Arrive with a positive attitude

Have your 30 second commercial ready

Tip:  Bring at least 20 copies of your resume.

Tip:  Do your research!

The more you know about a company, the more you can converse with the company representative and the more memorable you will be.

Tip:  Get the interviewer’s business card.

If you are called for an interview, you will want to follow up with a letter that reinforces the points you made and the facts you learned.

Tip:  Maximize, Maximize, Maximize!

The lines might be daunting but don’t fail to maximize this opportunity.  Talk to every company that fits your experience and ambitions.  If you meet with 20 recruiters, at the end of the day you will know 20 people by name.  That sure beats sending a blind resume to “Personnel Director.”

Tip:  Plan a few key questions!

Be ready to ask intelligent questions like asking how your skills might be utilized within the framework of the company and by asking questions about relevant news within that organization.  Make sure to ask the recruiter what he or she likes best about the corporate culture to better assess if that company is right for you.

Tip:  Wear Proper Business Attire

First impressions count!

Few people are, because we tend not to think about weekends holistically. Here’s one way to look at it: There are 60 hours between 6 p.m. Friday and 6 a.m. Monday. Even if you sleep for 24 of those hours, that leaves 36 hours for other things. That’s the equivalent of a full-time job. Yet many of us hit Monday morning with a vague sense of having squandered our precious downtime on activities that didn’t help us recreate.
