Though it may seem that the job search process is dominated by technology, nothing replaces a face-to-face interaction in making a good impression. This workshop will touch upon all of the key components to making the best impression possible before, during, and after the job fair. Research, Preparation, Dress, and Strategy will be discussed. In addition, we will consider what employers hope to gain from job fairs and how to be a helpful candidate that leaves a positive and lasting impression.
After completing this workshop you will be able to:
- Research and prepare so that you can make an excellent first impression at your next job fair
- Use the job fair to your advantage, especially if you don’t have experience or are making a career transition
- Understand how employers use job fairs to screen potential candidates and market themselves
- Implement a number of strategies that will make a lasting, positive impression on employers
