HOW TO TURN A JOB FAIR INTO A JOB OFFER

• Research all companies attending. Know leadership, location, mission, products, and services.

• Revise your résumé to fit specific company needs from those of interest, one for each company with a general résumé for the others.

• Bring more than enough résumés (more than the

companies of interest). Keep a portfolio. Leave your backpack at home.

• Dress for success. A suit (black, navy, or charcoal gray)

is always a safe choice. However, make sure you do your homework and know what the organization wears.

• Greet everyone with a smile and a handshake. • Be ready with your Elevator Pitch. • Go first to companies that you’re not as interested in. You might be surprised, and it’s great practice!

• Speak clearly and concisely. End on a positive note. • Be prepared with questions for the employer. • Make sure to get employers’ business cards. • Send thank-you notes to each employer within two days. • Follow up specifically with employers of interest within two days, and as often as necessary afterward.
