Job Fair Guidelines

  • Professional appearance is a must! Look your best in terms of dress and personal grooming
  • Take 10–25 resumes with you. If a list of employer participants is available beforehand, modify your number in terms of how many employers you plan to see
  • Get the employer rep's business card and any company literature that is available
  • You might have as little as five minutes to talk with the recruiter – listen carefully and take notes afterward to aid your memory
  • Most importantly – within one to two weeks, send a personalized thank you note which summarizes key points you discussed and asks for a formal job interview
  • Visit the Career Resources Center for assistance, as you need it!

A job fair is a professional event. Be sure to dress as professionally as you would for an interview, and be sure a Career Development counselor has critiqued your resume before handing it in to a company representative.
