Career Fairs

For employers, a Career Fair is an opportunity to attract and screen hundreds of candidates to efficiently select promising ones for the future follow-up process. For students, a Career Fair is an opportunity to make “in person” contact with several organizations/companies of interest all at once.  To be a successful candidate at a Career Fair, a student should do the following:

  • Find out what companies will be present at the fair
  • Prepare at least two appropriate questions for each employer
  • Bring a sufficient supply of resumes placed in an attractive folder
  • Also bring a list of your references, but give those only per request
  • Arrive early and plan to stay late
  • Turn your cell phone off (and do not text!)
  • Do not travel in a group
  • Make sure that either your name tag or your student ID is visible
  • Offer a firm handshake, make eye contact, and show enthusiasm
  • Market your skills and abilities with a fast pace – “prepare your elevator speech”
  • Do not ask employers about salary
  • Do not simply take the gifts from the tables
  • Conduct yourself professionally at all times
  • Collect business cards
  • Say “thank you” every time
  • Consider visiting employers which are not on your list if you have time
  • Talk to as many employers and other attendees as you can – networking
