JOB Fair 2014

1. Bring plenty of resumes.  Many local employers will be at the job fair, so you will want to have plenty of resumes.
2. Dress appropriately.  Job seekers should dress for a job fair just like they would dress for an interview.  A good rule of thumb is to dress better than you would for the job.
3. Don’t hesitate to approach a representative or to join a group already in discussion.
4. Feel free to take notes during your conversations.
5. Talk about your skills and accomplishments.  Employers come to this job fair to find people who can fill needs within their companies. Show the needs you can fill.
6. Ask questions.  Inquire about the employers’ industry, hiring preferences, positions available, and career opportunities.
7. Gather information.  Employers will provide brochures and flyers about their companies.
8. Use this opportunity to practice.  Very few people are comfortable with interviewing.  A job fair is a great place to practice your people skills so that your next job interview will go more smoothly.
9. Talk with other job hunters.  They often are aware of job openings that they are not interested in.  These fellow job hunters can share this information with you.
10. Show what a great person you are.  Thank the employer for the opportunity to learn about their company, even if you are not interested in a job with them.  If you are interested in a job with a company, send them a note thanking them for the opportunity to meet with them.  Be sure to get one of their business cards with their name and address.
11. Look for opportunity.  Rather than looking for a current job opening, talk with employers about how their company operates and tie your skills to their needs.  This could lead to a better job for you in the future.
12. Prioritize.  Check the general layout of employers and note which employers interest you most.  Then, visit as many others as you can.
13. Remember, some representatives are here today to provide career related information, not to offer jobs.
