Tips for Job Seekers

  • PREPARE: Give yourself ample time ahead of the fair and make sure you have everything in order so you can put your best foot forward.

    • Update your resume and LinkedIn profile (if you have one).

    • Review the employers who are attending so you know who you want to connect with. It also helps to think of questions and conversation points you may want to ask when you speak with an employer one-on-one.

    • The employers that you meet with want to learn more about you! Think of a short overview about your background, studies, and career goals. Practice so you’re ready when it’s time to introduce yourself to a recruiter.

    • Dress nicely and professionally. This helps to make a good first impression with recruiters and employees. Plus, wearing something that makes you feel good will boost your confidence. 

    • Plan where you will be sitting during the event ahead of time. Try and find a quiet place with a clean background behind you.

    • Check your technology. Make sure you have a stable internet connection and your video and audio are working correctly.

 

  • ATTEND: Log in from any device. Connect with employers and take the next step in your career!

    • Start chatting! Simply select the employer you wish to chat with, and you will be automatically connected with the next available recruiter.

    • You can actively wait to speak with multiple employers, so be sure to make the most of the time by waiting in line for multiple employers.

    • Arrive on time. Being on time shows the employer that you’re dependable.

    • Have paper and pen nearby so you can take notes and write down any questions you think of during the meeting.

    • Easily toggle off your chat availability if you want a break.
