Career Fair Strategies – Making a Big Impression in a Short Time
If you haven’t been to a career fair before, it is a unique situation where you have a very short time to make a big impression! What will you say when the recruiter looks you in the eye and says “how can I help you?” It’s really all about how you can help them, of course. We’ll cover what recruiters are looking for, what they may ask and how you can respond confidently and clearly. You’ll also learn about logistical and preparation strategies to enable you to manage the many opportunities to share your story that only a career fair can offer.
- Wednesday, 4/3 12 – 1 p.m. TMH 255
- Thursday, 4/4 12 – 1 p.m. TMH 255
