The month of June 2019 is fast approaching and that will make it the 6th month of 2019.

Have you taken stock? How is the company faring so far? Is the strategy adopted working? Is the company lagging behind?

It is important to review the operations, financial strategy and processes for the year now. Now is as good a time to hit the button on improving your strengths and eliminating weaknesses.

Now that the job fair is over it is time to follow up!

So, whether you jotted the employer’s email address down in a notebook or have it on a card make sure to reach out. If you did neither don't worry, you can go to the company's website and look for the hiring manager's email. Once you have found their email (or address) follow up with a friendly email, or even send a quick thank you card in the mail. Don’t laugh, it’s the little things that can set you apart.

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. Perhaps you both love and own Golden Retrievers or you enjoy going snowboarding. Whatever you can say to make that personal connection in their brain is worth mentioning again! I am a huge believer in making things personal : )

Just be careful not to make your follow up too casual. Go to the employer’s website and find specific positions that you could apply to or you know you are interested in and mention that in your follow up as well. Be sure to tie your skill sets to match the open position's qualifications.

Ideally, you should follow up within two-three days after the job fair but no later. So now is the time!

Here is what a sample follow up could look like:

Hello Mr. Santos,

It was an absolute pleasure to meet you at the job fair this past (insert day of the week) at (the location)! I can’t believe that we both went to the same high school and had Mrs. Belmont for third grade! What a small world, isn’t it?

I would love the chance to speak to you a bit more about the (name the title you’re interested in) position. I feel that I would make an outstanding candidate for that role because I (link your qualifications to the role and mention at least 3 things that support why they should hire you).

I look forward to doing great things for (company name) Mr. Santos. I have attached my resume for your convenience and hope to speak with you soon.

Please have a wonderful rest of your week!

Best, (Your name)

We here at Jobcase wish you the best of luck landing the job! : )

Check out these tips to make sure you are all set for the job fair tomorrow, May 30th!

-Lay out your clothing the night 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).

-Grab those resumes. Pack at least 50 copies and place them in a folder, or notebook and then tuck them away in a bag. Just make sure your resumes are easily accessible when an employer requests a copy, so you don't have to go digging for it!

-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!

-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.

-Get to the fair on time. Plan how you will get there and how long it will take with [Google maps] (https://www.google.com/maps). If you can, arrive a little bit early to calm your nerves and take a lap around the room.

-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?

-Know that company’s mission/culture. If you haven’t researched it yet, 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.

-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! : )

Anyone know how many resumes I need to bring to the job fair? Do you keep them in something or just carry them around with you? I just don't wanna look stupid.

I saw that they are having free headshots at the job fair. I have NEVER had my photo professionally taken in my life. What do you with it after anyway? Will this help me find a job??

So I’m signed up for the job fair and I have a question on what I should wear. I was told to wear “professional attire” but what does that really mean? When I worked at Subway that meant a subway shirt and hat.. I want to make a good impression here but I can’t afford buying a new suit for this. That’s why I NEED a job!!! Thanks in advance.
