Hey Boston, are you ready?

The job fair is this Thursday, June 6th from 1-4pm at the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center!

Find out all the info [here] (https://www.jobcase.com/ulem-boston-job-fair).

NOW is the time to make those final preparations so you are confident and ready to go! Check out these tips to help you prepare for the fair.

-Monday Know the companies you are interested in and research their mission/culture TODAY. Take some time to see what they are all about and jot down some notes! Remember, your pitch should be tailored to what YOU bring to that company based on what they do. They will be impressed! Wondering who will be there? Find out [here] (https://www.jobcase.com/conversations/35447421-6e61-55be-a3d4-95cee946fa77)

-Monday or Tuesday Print and pack at least 50 copies of your resume and place them in a folder, or notebook and then tuck them away in a bag. You can run to Staples, your local library or print at home. Just make sure your resumes are easily accessible when an employer requests a copy, so you don't have to go digging for it!

-Tuesday Plan to get to the fair on time. Figure out how you will get there and how long it will take with Google maps. Are you sharing a ride, walking, taking the train or a Lyft? Just have your plan in place! If you can, arrive a little bit early (15mins) to calm your nerves and take a lap around the room when the doors open up.

-Wednesday Lay out your clothing the day before. By planning ahead you don’t have to scramble trying to find something in the morning. Also, be sure it's clean and wrinkle-free. Check out some tips on what to wear [here] (https://www.jobcase.com/conversations/60d77b2f-6640-5331-8816-dca310ec58bf?from=https%253A%252F%252Fwww.jobcase.com%252Fcommunity).

-Wednesday night Go to bed early.*Even if you’re a night owl, put on those pj’s and climb into bed early enough the night before so you get a full 8 hours. You will look rested tomorrow and feel much calmer and more focused.

-Thursday morning Eat a good breakfast. It’s true what they say, breakfast IS the most important meal of the day. It will fuel your brain/body first thing and last until lunchtime! When in doubt bring a snack to eat later to help keep you energized!

Also, be sure to practice your pitch a few times that morning. Whether it’s in the shower or on the ride over, say it a few times so you build up that confidence! What will you say in 20-30 seconds to grab that employer’s attention?

Nervous? If you are not sure what to say when you first meet an employer, use a few of these [conversation starters] (https://www.jobcase.com/conversations/6d46f61d-c53b-5ec5-9d7c-69cc61713f6a) to get things rolling!

Wishing you the best of luck at the job fair this week! : )
