How to Make the Most of the Career and Internship Fair 1TU^aTcWT2PaTTa5PXa

â&#x20AC;˘ Research the companies participating in the Fall Career and Internship Fair - Review corporate profiles and employment information on BuckyNet. â&#x20AC;˘ Prepare a one-minute â&#x20AC;&#x153;commercialâ&#x20AC;? to: introduce yourself, demonstrate that you know something about the company, express why youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re interested in working for them and how your skills relate to what you know about the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs. â&#x20AC;˘ Be prepared with questions to ask employers - Practice out loud! â&#x20AC;˘ Know the general types of positions in which you have an interest for and where you want to go with your career. â&#x20AC;˘ Have a resume thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s digestible in one minuteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reading by busy employers. â&#x20AC;˘ Be organized! Prepare a list of employers you want to visit during the Fall Career and Internship Fair.

3daX]VcWT2PaTTa5PXa

â&#x20AC;˘ Business professional attire is suggested - Look neat and polished and recruiters will remember you! â&#x20AC;˘ Make eye contact when introducing yourself to employers - Shake hands firmly and pay close attention to what the representative is saying. â&#x20AC;˘ Ask questions about the company and current employment opportunities. â&#x20AC;˘ Be enthusiastic! Smile and project interest in the company. â&#x20AC;˘ Ask representatives for business cards. â&#x20AC;˘ Ask how you should best follow-up, and who the contact person is. â&#x20AC;˘ Make notes as you leave each company youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re interested in. You want to be prepared if you have further contact with a company representative.

0UcTacWT2PaTTa5PXa

â&#x20AC;˘ Send a thank you and duplicate of your resume to employer representatives of particular interest to you. In your note, briefly describe an additional strength of yours that you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to mention at the fair and restate your interest in interviewing with them. â&#x20AC;˘ Be prepared to interview with organizations of interest after the Fair. Several organizations will conduct on-campus interviews at the Business Career Center (BCC) or the College of Letters and Science Career Services office the day after the Fair. If you sign up for an interview at the Fair, make sure you know where your interview will take place.
