Career Event Tips

Arrive Early. Get a list of employers online. Plan your order of execution.

  1. Develop a Game Plan. Visit your top choices first, but don’t forget to network with companies who sound interesting to you but don’t indicate work in your field.  Many companies often hire for positions from all areas.     
  2. Empower Yourself. Job recruiters are looking for employees just like you.  They have a need for hiring, that’s why they are at this event.  Don’t be shy about introducing yourself and really highlighting your skills and interest.
  3. Start “Wowing!” You’ll only have a few minutes to “wow” a recruiter, so make it interesting, concise, and memorable.
