Maximize Your Time at the Job Fair

A large part of your success at a job fair will result from making the most out of the time you have face-to-face with a recruiter. It is crucial that you network, keep an open mind, promote yourself, and maintain a positive attitude through out the event. Job fairs allow you to meet with several employers at once - take full advantage by following the tips below:

  • Networking - this event is all about making connections with companies and even the people in line with you. Each connection is an opportunity. If a company isn't hiring for a position that fits your skills, don't hesitate to ask for other contact information for different roles, be curious!
  • Open Mindedness - just because you've never done something, doesn't mean you can't do it or wouldn't like doing it; think outside of the box... the possibilities are endless!
  • Promote yourself - be confident in all the great qualities that you can bring to a company, discuss your skills and experience in a confident manner.
  • Positive attitude - don't assume there is nothing here for you and walk around the room without talking to recruiters. You've prepared a great resume, dressed for success, and made it to the event, keep the positive momentum going with conversations.
  • Engage in conversation - while you should be aware and courteous of the time sensitive aspect of a job fair when talking to a recruiter, don't shy away from answering questions fully. This is your time to showcase yourself; you are a potential hire.
