How to Make the Most out of a Career Fair.  

What to do before, during, and after the big event.
    • Check your Handshake account to know what companies are coming to the fair, what positions they are hiring for at this time, and then decide and prioritize who you want to meet based on your interests and the company research you do.
    • Research the companies you are interested in connecting with by visiting their website and LinkedIn page.  Consider reaching out to alumni that work at your companies of interest to conduct informational interviews and learn more.  
    • Update your resume and have 20 printed and ready to go.  You may have more than one version, depending on your interests.
    • Develop a 30-second introduction (elevator speech) to introduce yourself and practice brief answers to questions from employers regarding your career goals and how you fit with their opportunities and company.
    • In addition to being ready to answer their questions, be ready with a few of your own, specific to the company and the positions.
    • Plan to dress professionally.
