Update Your Contact Information
Plan to wear comfortable but professional clothing—first impressions matter!
Research the companies that will be participating in the fair, especially those of interest to you.
Bring several copies of your clean, up-to-date resume in a folder or portfolio.
This event is to help you find employment; do not bring your family along with you.
Don’t let someone else speak for you.
Shake hands, make good eye contact, smile, and deliver your 30 second commercial or elevator speech.
Offer a resume to the employer. Some employers will refer you to their company web site.
Be reasonable when taking recruiter giveaways. Thank employers for any materials you are given.
Jot down a fact on the back of a business card to help jog your memory when you write a follow-up letter.
Don’t ask, "What do you have for my major?"
Be assertive without being rude.
Be open-minded and flexible; you might be surprised at what you find.
Use the fair to pick up pertinent information about an organization that can be used in a follow up letter of inquiry, application, or thank you note.
Be sensitive to others waiting behind you.
Don’t ask about salary and benefits.
Keep track of the organizations and representatives with whom you spoke.
Send a thank you letter to the representatives you wish to pursue. This will set the stage for future correspondence.
Reflect upon your approach and interactions. What went well? What would you do differently? Did you learn anything about yourself or a potential employer?
