Do Your Homework

A list of the participating companies is printed in advance and posted on the Career Center website with links to each of their sites. Take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with these employers so that you'll be able to ask intelligent, well thought-out questions at the expo.

Chart Your Course

If your time is short, select the employers you're most interested in learning about and visit them first. The Career & Internship Expo will be set up in an "open house" format, so you may talk to the recruiters of your choice.

Explore All Options

Talk with as many recruiters as you can who might be interested in your major, experience, skills, and accomplishments. Keep an open mind! For example, a health care company may not be looking only for health science majors - it may have openings in accounting, personnel, or management.

First Impressions Count

Confidence rates high with recruiters; cockiness does not! Sell yourself by stressing your skills, strengths, and interests. Be enthusiastic and courteous. Remember to smile and have a positive attitude.

Dress Professionally

Conservative, professional business attire is best. You need to be neatly groomed. Wear a neatly pressed suit (men: with a tie) if you are seeking a career position. If you are looking for part-time work or an internship, wear a nice shirt/blouse and dress pants/skirt.

Be Realistic in Your Expectations

Don't expect an on-the-spot job offer. At the job fair you will be "micro-interviewing" for a short time with each recruiter. If there is a mutual interest, they'll contact you for a follow-up interview.

Ask Plenty of Questions

Use each discussion with a recruiter as an opportunity. Increase your knowledge of the company and its job options, as well as the qualities and skills the recruiter is looking for in a job candidate. Explore available advancement and promotion paths, company training programs, etc.

Bring Resumes

Your resume is an advertisement for YOU. Keep it short in length and long in honesty, appearance, and organization. Cover the basics: your education, skills, and work experience. Typos are unacceptable. If you're not sure, submit your resume to the Career Center for a resume critique. Cover letters are not necessary at a Career & Internship Expo.

Follow-Up with a "Thank You" Letter

If a recruiter has been particularly helpful, remember to send a "thank you" letter. It's a good way to jog the recruiter's memory of you and relay your interest in the company. If you weren't able to get a business card with the recruiter's name and address, check with the staff in the Career Center.
