JOB SEEKER TIPS TO MAKE YOUR VISIT A SUCCESS

RESEARCH

Over 100 companies will be on hand to recruit for jobs, internships, business and educational opportunities. To make the most of your visit we advise you  to study the following information:

 

PLAN

Develop a game plan to maximize your time at the expo. Make a list of target companies and map out your visit. Make sure to visit with companies of interest even if they aren't recruiting for jobs in your field. Allow time to network and for unexpected opportunities and conversations.

 

PREPARE

Be prepared with questions for each recruiter. Expect to be asked, “Why do you want to work for our company?" Here are some other suggestions to help you stand out and be memorable:

 

DO

  • View Company Room and Table assignments at Registration table.
  • Use a firm handshake, a warm smile, good eye contact, and a strong voice.
  • Studies show the average employer makes a hiring decision within 15 seconds of meeting a job seeker, so strive to make a good impression!
  • Gather business cards or contact information from each person of interest.
  • Network with recruiters, volunteer staff and fellow job seekers in attendance to learn about other possibilities in your field.
