Quick Tips To Remember

  • Be prepared to ask an unlimited number of questions. If a firm likes you, they may introduce you to 5+ people. It's important to ask them all different questions. See the Career Fair eBook for more.
  • Don't hang out with your friends. Companies don't hire in pairs, they want to see that you're a competent and comfortable individual.
  • Have your clothes dry cleaned a few days before. You want to stand out, but not for a wrinkled jacket!
  • Keep as many business cards as possible. After each meeting, write a little note on the back that will help you when you send your follow-up email!
  • Research every company before the event. The university should have a list of the companies on the event's website. The last thing you want is to not know how to pronounce a company's name (I've seen it happen). Watch youtube videos if possible.
  • Be prepared to talk about yourself using a 30 second elevator pitch! If you don't prepare for this, you will flop. Check out our "Elevator Pitch" eBook below.
  • Try to meet the partners and the recruiters, but don't ignore the lower level staff and employees. Often times a good comment from them can be that extra push you need to get the interview!
  • Once you make eye contact with someone, move in. Lurking for too long will be awkward for you and the recruiter!
