   Job Fair Tips

Job fairs are wonderfully hectic and non-structured environments. Come early, and be prepared to distribute résumés and to be interviewed on the spot.

  • create a one-minute "commercial" about yourself
  • research the participating employers before the day of the event
  • be curious and ask questions
  • hand out lots of résumés
  • practice your interviewing skills beforehand
  • dress professionally
  • chat with recruiters and collect business cards on which to jot down notes
  • ask about specific positions and salary ranges (not specific salary)
  • follow up with companies/school systems either by mailing or e-mailing a thank you note, or by calling if appropriate
