How to Work a Job Fair

Companies send representatives to job fairs for the following purposes:

  • Promote their company.
  • Build a pool of potential candidates.
  • Conduct preliminary applicant screenings.
  • Hold on-site interviews.

Your objective is to make a positive impression on potential employers.

Before the Event:

  • Research participating companies.
  • Prioritize the companies to visit.
  • Prepare and practice a concise "elevator pitch" introducing yourself and your interest in the company. Elements should include:
    • That you know something about the company
    • Why you’re interested in working for them 
    • How your skills relate to what you know about the company’s needs.
  • Create or review your professional resume.
  • Prepare a list of relevant questions for employers. For example: "What kind of skills and experience do you look for in the employees you hire?" "What kind of entry-level positions exist within your organization?" Don’t ask questions where the answers are on the company website.

On the Day of the Event:

  • Dress professionally.
  • Maintain eye contact and offer a firm handshake.
  • Display enthusiasm and genuine interest.
  • Ask insightful questions.
  • Inquire about follow-up procedures and contacts.
  • Collect business cards and take notes.

After the Event:

  • Email a thank-you note along with your resume to companies of interest.
  • Consider making follow-up phone calls when appropriate.
