Tips For Navigating A Career Fair

  • Turn your cell phone off.
  • Be independent – you look more serious walking alone rather than with a group of friends.
  • Dress professionally by wearing a business suit
  • Make a good first impression – greet the employer and introduce yourself. Smile, make eye contact, and use a firm handshake. Use your one-minute script about yourself to start conversations with employers.
  • It is important that you bring well written copies of your resume to disseminate to employer representatives.
  • Make sure that you acquire the business cards from the employer representatives that you are interested in working for.
  • Keep a record of your correspondences during the Career Fair to use in your follow-up.
  • Always send a thank you card or email to the employer representative and reiterate your interest in working for them.
