Meet and connect with over 100 employers at the Career Fair! This two day event is your opportunity to meet face to face with recruiters at your targeted companies.
Tips for success:
Research employers ahead of time: take a look of who’s attending and what positions they are recruiting for. Want more? Visit their company website. By meeting the recruiter at the fair they can point you in the right direction for their company!
Dress to impress: Just like an interview or important meeting, suits are preferred. Slacks, button downs, jacket’s recommended. Make your best impression!
Bring copies of your resume and business card: Keep your summary and skills section broad enough to include your industry competencies, key words to increase your SEO, and highlight your skills. Include your LinkedIn profile URL!
