Now that You’ve Made the Connection…How to Follow Up

Walk away from the Employer Connections Fair with some new friends, a handful of business cards, and a short list of organizations you’d like to work for?

Here’s a short video with simple tips and an action plan for following up with employers:

One of our favorite tips to stand out like a Dartmouth rock star hire? Browse through press releases and content on organization’s website and go beyond yesterday’s conversation in your follow-up: What piques your interest about the company and especially excites you about their work? Demonstrate that interest.

It may seem like employers are in a buyer’s market — and that they get to do most of the selection decisions. But, ultimately, you get decide where you want to work, too. And until you show them — they can’t gauge how very interested you are.

As always, career advisors are available to answer any questions you may have on follow-up. Schedule an appointment with Career Services or stop by our office on the 2nd floor of 63 South Main (above Bank of America) for one of our drop-in appointments, available on a first-come, first-serve basis Monday through Friday from 1:30 to 4:00 pm.
