Helpful tips that lead to success at a job fair:
Have plenty of neat, clean copies of your resume on hand to provide to recruiters
Dress to impress - neat hair, nails, clothing
Be organized - bring along a folder or tote to keep all of your documents in order
Be prepared - have an idea of what you’re looking for (Full-time, Part-time, field, etc.)
Be confident - it shows, and we like it!
Be patient - sometimes, Job Fairs can get a little hectic. Take a deep breath and try to maximize your time at the event. If a company that interests you seems to have an overly crowded booth with several applicants, take a step back and check out all of the other great companies that are present while you wait for the line to shorten - networking is a key ingredient to a successful job search.
Hope to see you on Monday!
