Tip #4: Job and Internship Fair Success Seminar
The Job and Internship Fair Success Seminar is being offered on Tuesday, January 15 at 1:00 p.m. and Thursday January 17 at 3:00 p.m. both in Murray-Herrick Campus Center Room 124.
The seminar will offer tips on how to approach the open floor time, introductions to employers, resume tips, interviewing ideas, contacting employers in advance of the Fair and follow-up after the Fair. Bring your packet “I’m Going to the Fair”. If you are not able to attend the live session this is also available via YouTube.
Tip #5: Resume should be ready
Your resume should be in the final draft stages and ready to send or post to employers. Refer to page 15 in your packet for ideas on resources available through our office to assist you with the development of your resume.
The Resume Writing seminar is being offered on Tuesday, January 15 at noon and Friday, January 18 at 11:00 a.m. both in Murray-Herrick Campus Center Room 124.
You can even call for daily “pop-in” times for a staff member to review your resume. When your resume is complete, post it on the www.mnpcfair.org website where employers attending the event will have access to your information and may contact you for an interview.
Tip #6: Apply in Advance
Remember that the student feedback strongly recommends applying in advance. ”It really works!” NOW is the time to research employers and apply directly to employers who are accepting resumes in advance of the Fair. Refer to page 15 in your packet for what to include in the letter to employers. (This topic is also covered in the Resume writing seminar dates listed in Tip #5)
Tip #7: Practice Interviewing Skills
Begin to gather information about interviewing skills. Pages 16-19 in your packet give further resources and information about preparing for successful interviews. You may also call (651) 962-6761 to schedule a mock interview to practice. Interviewing skills seminars offered: Tuesday, January 15 at noon and Wednesday, January 23 at 2:00 p.m.
Tip #8: On-Campus Interviewing
In addition to the Job and Internship Fair, the spring session for On-Campus Interviewing provides opportunities to meet with employers who are hiring for full-time and internship positions. If you have not attended an Orientation to On-Campus Interviewing Session (different from the Orientation to Job and Internship Fair session) you will need to attend one of the seminars.
