Comments From Past Attendees

"The campus career fair is a very valuable networking opportunity that you will not find elsewhere. Many of the agriculture companies that attend are actively looking for employees. It is a good opportunity to meet people in the industry, put a face to your resume and discover opportunities. I would definitely recommend the career fair to anyone looking for a job in agriculture but especially to people new to the industry." - 4th year Agriculture and Bioresources student

"I am thankful the U of S offers this opportunity to network with potential employers.  I landed two interviews because of it." - 2nd year Agriculture and Bioresources student

Tips for Success

What to do before the event
  • Get your resume ready!
  • View the list of exhibitors in advance.
  • Research the companies you are interested in and the positions they are hiring for.
  • Prepare intelligent, informed questions in advance for those employers that interest you. This will allow you to present yourself as well informed and will capture the employer’s attention.
  • Consider creating a LinkedIn account.
What to wear
  • Arrive neatly dressed, and appear well groomed and professional at all times while at the event. 
  • Avoid perfume/cologne and use mints instead of gum.
What to bring
  • Pen and notepad
  • Resumes
  • Portfolio or clipboard—to store the information and business cards you will pick up
Initiating contact
  • Know what it is that you are looking to find out about the organization, and prepare a few questions in advance.
  • Try introducing yourself by saying your name and what your major is.
  • Remember to smile and maintain good eye contact. Demonstrating a positive attitude and being engaged are very important!
Additional tips
  • Attend the event alone—you will be more focused on your job search and make a stronger impression with potential employers.
  • Stay long enough to have your questions answered and your interest recognized, but never monopolize an exhibitor's time. 
  • Show interest in the company, not just its promotional items.
  • Focus on what you can bring to the organization, not what the organization can do for you.
  • Be relaxed and have fun!
