Dress professionally. Wear the same attire that you would for an interview.
- Map out a Plan
Download the Career Fair Plus App to your phone and make a plan for the companies that you want to approach.
- Attend the Expo
Be confident and prepared when you approach employers. Shake hands, look the representative in the eye and introduce yourself utilizing your 30-second commercial. Smile and make sure not to cover your nametag with your hair, folder or bag. Be yourself! Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
- Follow Up
Ask representatives how they would like you to follow up. Be sure to do what they ask you to do.
