Job fairs are an essential tool to everyone’s job search. It’s an efficient use of time because job seekers get the chance to ask questions, practice their networking skills, and make important connections, It’s a win-win for both job seekers and employers because employers are able to meet a lot of great candidates, and job seekers can expand their professional network and potentially land their next job or internship.

Job Fair Tips

  • Have a good sense of the position you want, and what you can bring to the role. Having a 30-60 second elevator pitch can serve you well in this type of environment because of the limited time you may have with each employer.
  • Bring several copies of your resume (more than you think you might need)
  • Research the companies you’re interested in talking with before the fair. This way, you can embed what you’ve learned into the conversations you have with recruiters.
  • Be open to talking with employers that you might not have considered before. Just because an employer is known for a specific product or service, they also have departments that support their work, such as IT, finance/accounting, and more.
