What kinds of things should I ask during a job fair? Do I just introduce myself and that's it? Any help is appreciated, thank you!

Hi Virginia. NO you should always have questions. You can research the companies before you go to the job fair and decide which ones you want to work for. Then ask them questions that pertain to the job, the company, or what you want to know. Avoid things like how many paid sick days do I get. Stick to strong questions that encourage the person to speak about the company and how they shine. Best of luck to you.

Never be afraid to ask questions, they expect it!

https://www.careerconfidential.com ... Peggy McKee, CEO, will shape you up far beyond what you'd expect so that you can move ahead of numerous others. Her free teleseminars build you up! If you move into a career fair with a singular approach where you haven't yet filled out career aptitudes in an effort to pinpoint precisely what you would be excited about and can absolutely tackle, you may be targeted by multi-level marketers (which is what you don't desire) because they have 1 rule. Sign up new distributors. Seek payment immediately. Cash flow out of your pocket rather than into your life. Avoid these types. Network marketers will put you into training that is not designed to retain and build successful distributors. * What you can do at a career fair is connect with companies so that you can spot opportunities in advance, obtain names of hiring managers, but then, locate positions open so that you can identify hiring profiles/career pathways/identify new training regimens that will build you into a success. * Meet hiring managers. Then..., perhaps consider spending at least 6 months working with Peggy McKee. You don't want to speak to any hiring managers until you've clarified precisely what you can concretely bring (value-wise and revenue-wise) to a negotiating table. That's how tough competition is these days. I am sharing what I have personally confirmed. Head to Peggy. Find out what's involved so that you're not sitting in your car, scratching your head. This gal will get you out of unemployment into very real, prevailing hire. Respectfully, BKB, MBA.

Ask things like what kind of Pre-Requisitions you would need, what a typical day is like, along with basic things like what is the average pay or average workday. Introduce yourself first,then get into the nitty-gritty.
