Network with Employers and Kick-Start Your New Career!

School-sponsored career fairs are popular for recruiting entry-level employees. They allow corporate recruiters to screen many prospects in a short amount of time. Employers evaluate job candidates based on appearance, communication skills and first impressions, in addition to qualifications. Below are guidelines to help you get the most out of this exciting event.

Guidelines for a Successful Career & Networking Fair:

  • Plan a 60-second “commercial” about yourself
  • Practice your commercial at home
  • Practice confident body language, smiling, firm handshake, making eye contact, and excellent communication skills
  • Introduce yourself and express interest
  • Have several copies of your resume ready to hand out
  • Bring several copies of any certifications/licenses for prospective employers
  • Be prepared to complete an application
  • Obtain follow-up information from the prospective employer
  • If interviewed for a position, send a thank you note to the interviewer
  • Look and be at your very best – YOU ARE BEING EVALUATED!
