Career Fairs

Career fairs are a great to network with company recruiters. An important thing to remember about career fairs is to enter with an objective. Is your objective to practice networking professionally? Is it to speak to certain companies with openings you are interested in? Is it to observe to help you mentally prepare for your search next year? Know what your end goal is. Have a prepared elevator speech and practice your handshake, eye contact, etc. You should also be prepared to answer some questions about your interests and experience and ask questions about the company and opportunities. Research before attending is crucial to having successful interactions when you attend.

Students may get discouraged after attending a career fair because recruiters tell them to make sure they apply online – this is typically told to candidates so they can be officially considered through HR. However, if you made a good impression at the career fair, you can bet the recruiter will be looking for your name and resume.
