Job Fair Tips

  • Leave children at home
  • Bring plenty of resumes
  • Dress professionally . . . read more
    1. If possible, learn the names of employers who will attend the job fair and do some internet research prior to the day. If the names of the employers are not available, walk around the job fair and note the organizations that interest you.

       

    2. When you have targeted the organizations you are interested in, stand off to the side and listen to the conversations from other applicants. Read over some of their literature quickly, then approach the recruiter armed with knowledge learned through conversations from other applicants and the organization's written literature.

       

    3. Be prepared to do your one minute infomercial.
      1. Introduce yourself.

         

      2. Express your knowledge of the organization.

         

      3. Relate your background and experience to the recruiter.

         

      4. Be enthusiastic about their product, service or company.

         

    4. Network with other attendees. Networking has been proven to be the number one job search strategy. Get to know at least two more individuals working toward the same job goal as you.

       

    5. Ask for a business card and ask if you may call them in regards to the status of the position.

       

    6. After you leave the job fair, follow up with a thank you either through an e-mail or regular mail to those organizations you might be interested in working for in the future.
