2024 Career Fair

Career/Job Fair


March 7, 2024

Sullivan Field House

Don’t forget your resume!

Career Fair Tips:

  • Think about your job and/or career goals-specifically target which employers you want to meet (avoid visiting every employer)
  • Ensure you have enough copies of your resume
  • Your resume should be impeccable. Spelling, grammar and neatness count
  • Present yourself as you would for an interview…dress for the job
  • Be polite-wait for your turn to speak, employers will notice this
  • Thank the employer for their time
  • Be familiar with the employers to ensure you are targeting effectively…do your research
  • Make good notes-document which employers you spoke with and be sure to include any feedback and/or follow-up instructions
  • If you are directed to submit an application/resume online, do so as soon as possible.
  • Prepare an elevator pitch:
    • Introduce yourself
    • Mention your program of study
    • Describe the type of work being sought (summer, internship, co-op, full time?)
    • End by outlining what you can do for them (past experiences/education and other relevant information)

Remember to smile 😊
