How to prepare for a job fair:

  •   Research the positions offered by your target companies - click on their name to go to Career pages
  •   Modify your resume to highlight your exisiting experience for each position of interest (you may prepare more than one resume for more than one position)
  •  Practice your introduction ("elevator speech")
  •  Sleep well the night before
  •  Dress professionally (better to be more professional than too casual)
  •  Bring your resumes, customized for the positions/companies you seek
  •  Keep mints on hand and go light on the cologne or after-shave 
  • Understand that company practices usually require online applications - job fairs are introductions

 

Q: Why so many Recruiters? A: Recruiters are hired by many of your target companies to find people like you. If you have a specific company in mind (especially a large one), ask your recruiter if they screen for your target company.  Recruiters represent 10-20 (or more) companies and as many different industries.  They get paid by the company when you get hired, and you don't pay anything.  Learn more on how to work with Recruiters from the links below the company list, but make sure you ask each recruiter how best to work with them.

Recruiters -- another way to search for work

 Recruiters are often hired to do the first level of screening candidates for employers' open positions.  Depending on what kinds of positions and industries in which you want to work, recruiters who specialize in those areas may be helpful to you; most serve several industries and levels, from CEOs to entry-level, from IT, programmers, engineers and scientists, to accountants, administrative assistants, HVAC, drafters, and data entry, to warehouse, manufacturing, janitorial, and food service. External recruiters often have 10 or more companies for whom they are trying to find good candidates; your resume could go to more than one company. Frequently, the recruiting company gets paid by the company who hires their candidate (rather than by the job-seeker). 

 Here is some information on how to benefit from working with recruiters:
