Are you ready to get hired?

The annual Fall Career Fair will be hosted in the Student Center Multiplex from 10 AM - 2 PM and will feature more than 120 employers from various industries.

Use this blog to get to know who is coming for your program and get tips on how to nail your pitch.

Let's start with resources.

How to Prepare for a Career Fair 

Before the Career Fair

According to Learn Earn Retire, the best way to prepare for a career fair is by conducting thorough research beforehand. They recommend blocking out at least 8 hours to fully prepareThe article goes on to recommend three things that you'll need to determine from your research:

  1. What the company does
  2. Why you're interested in the company
  3. Questions that you can ask the recruiter

Example questions might be:

  • "How would you describe the company culture?"
  • "What is one of the biggest challenges of the job?"
  • "What are the backgrounds of other employees in your company or department?"
  • "Does your company have formal training programs, or do employees receive on-the-job training? Who is eligible? About how many people go through the training program each year?"
  • "What are the primary results a person in this position would be expected to achieve?"

Learn Earn Retire also recommends that students come fully prepared with resumes, business cards, a personal pitch, and an online presence (i.e. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn).
