Fair Preparation and Tips

Before the Fair: Do your Homework

  • Choose target employers. Browse the fair directory in advance and highlight “must see” employers.
  • Be knowledgeable about your target employers. Review their websites and position descriptions.
  • Have questions. Draft 2-3 questions based on your research that you can ask employer representatives.
  • Know your strengths and interests. Be prepared to talk about yourself and what you feel well-suited for.

At the Fair: Be Engaged and Engaging

  • Do not bring your resume. Explore now, apply later!
  • Make a good impression. Wear business casual attire. Smile, use direct eye contact, offer a firm handshake and show enthusiasm.
  • Strike up a conversation. Introduce yourself and start asking questions. Don’t wait for the employer to start talking.
  • Collect business cards. Get contact information for the representatives you speak with at each booth.
  • Remember what you talked about. Take notes on how and when to apply for jobs or internships.
  • Follow up. Within 48 hours of the fair, email additional questions to employers and thank them for their time at the fair.
