Tips From Past Attendees

"Even if you're in first year and not looking for a job yet, it's good to go - you can make contacts for internship or just start thinking about different divisions you might go to once you're done." - 1st year Education Undergrad

"Brainstorm a list of questions you would like to ask the exhibitors - this will help you feel more calm walking into the career fair. Be open to new employers - gain information from booths that appeal to you." - 4th year Education Undergrad

"Go in your first year of Education and dress in formal attire.  Ask each of the schools what they are looking for on resumes and in a teacher, then the following year be prepared to shine." -3rd year Education Undergrad

"No matter if you are looking to obtain a job, or information, it is a great experience to go and speak with individuals face to face and immerse yourself in information." - 3rd year Education Undergrad 

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!
