They might ask if...

One of the most common questions asked during an interview or at a job fair is…

Can you tell me about yourself?

Other variations could include...

Answer these 5 questions to help you plan what to say and impress employers!

1- What are the three strongest reasons I am a great fit for this job?

How to attract employers with your resume!

Your resume showcases all the things an employer is looking for and each has certain expectations that they would like you to fulfill. It’s important to show them in your resume how/why you are the perfect fit.

Check out these tips on how to make your resume stronger and desirable to employers!

1- Have the qualifications for the job
Increase your chances of being hired by tailoring your resume specifically to jobs that you are qualified for…

Time to follow up!

Don’t let employers forget about you once the job fair ends...

Now is the time to follow up!

-Do it sooner rather than later
1-2 business days after the job fair is ideal.

-Make it personal
Remember that employers have met and spoken to MANY people at the fair, so it’s unlikely they will automatically remember you. If you had a good conversation, make note of something you discussed and mention it in the email.

-Reach out to the right people

Fields Available

In regard to fields of work that are being presented would it be appropriate for a third year college student who's working on their degree to attend?
