Job Fair Preparation Tips

  • Update Your Resume: Whether you need it to register for a fair, or to provide to recruiters during an in-person event or virtual chat, have your resume prepared in advance and saved as a PDF to avoid formatting issues. Upload and have it available so you can quickly access it if needed. 
  • Research: Review the list of employers and learn about what they do and their opportunities. This will help you select who you'd like to visit, as well as allow you to prepare appropriate questions for your conversation or to express interest in a specific role. 
  • Prepare Your Introduction: Although this isn't an interview, you might be asked "Tell us about yourself." Prepare a brief overview of your education, skills/experiences and career-related goals. View the Candid Career and CareerSpots videos below for ideas.
  • Attire: Regardless of fair format, it is still important to make a great first-impression. View tips on our Dress for Success page. And if you don't have appropriate attire, visit the Career Closet!
  • Communication:  Regardless of the fair format, communicate professionally, address individuals with courtesy, take notes and be sure to follow up after the event - whether it is to complete an application or to thank the representatives for their time.
