CAREER FAIR TIPS

A career fair is an opportunity for you to meet with employer representatives on an informal basis to discuss career information and employment opportunities. It is another form of networking that can help you get your foot in the door of an employer through careful planning. A major part of planning process for a career fair is developing a list of questions to ask the employer representatives. Also, research the employers that plan to attend. This gives you a heads up on the employers you are interested in approaching.

APPROPRIATE DRESS

Pick out a professional outfit. Most career day fairs recommend that you dress as if you are going on an interview. It is better to be overdressed than underdressed at a career fair. Suits are appropriate for both men and women.
