Students, alumni, faculty, staff and the public are invited to attend and talk to employers about career opportunities in their particular area: accounting, banking and finance, government, business, computer information systems, resources management, human resources, social sciences, liberal arts, nursing, etc.

The career fair is the center of the recruiting industry. You will likely find yourself to be one of the many applicants lined up to meet with the more popular employers. Because of the time constraints, you have a very small window of opportunity for creating a very big impression.

The most important thing that you will need to understand is that every conversation with a recruiter is an interview and needs to be treated like one. The company representatives are usually Human Resource recruiters, not the hiring managers. Their job is to eliminate all but a few candidates so that the hiring managers can devote more time to the few. Their job is to screen you, not to hire you. Your job is to convince them that you are one of the few that they want to put their seal of approval to. To do that you need to come to the Career fair prepared.

Get a list of the companies that will be participating ahead of time so that you can research each organization that is of interest to you.

 

  • Come dressed for an interview. (Business Dress) Your dress is even more critical than at a traditional interview. The first impression formed of you is visual!
  • Bring plenty of copies of your resume. If you have multiple job objectives, bring multiple resumes, one for each objective.
  • Bring copies of your top three letters of recommendation, one set for each copy of your resume. Make sure that each company get copies of your letters of recommendations. It will force them to file your resume differently from the stack.
  • Once you are finished with the interview, write down any details you will need to remember. It’s amazing how easy it is to have different conversations confused by the end of the day.
  • Be prepared to discuss the company, to answer questions about yourself, and to always present yourself at your very best.
  • Leave cell phones and other electronic devices in your automobile.

    When you first arrive at the fair walk around and take notes of where the recruiters of most interest to you are. Know whom you want to talk to and in what order.

    Don’t waste time on companies whose openings are of no interest to you or which you are not qualified. GOOD LUCK!
