Career Fair is the best place to look if you’re seeking for an internship or job with an established company.

 

Here are some tips for you to prepare and remember prior to attending the career fair:

 

  1. Make your resume stand out

 

Your resume is a snapshot of your entire professional life. At a career fair, it’s not enough to just have a resume, though; your resume needs to be tailored to perfection.

 

First step – get your resume reviewed. So many people just slap together their resume and don’t give it a second thought. You really need to think about the information you’re putting down, how it looks, and who will be reading it.

 

You also need to sweat the details. Here’s a few tips:

  • When you list your work experience, talk about your accomplishments rather than your duties. If you can quantify something you did, rather than just regurgitate what you were simply expected to do, you’ve just put cream on top of your resume cake.
  • Tailor your resume for the job you’re looking for. If you’re looking for a job or internship in your major, emphasize experience in that field – even if it was unpaid or volunteer experience. It’s totally cool to put club or volunteer experience above your work history if it’s more relevant. You should always be thinking about what you want a recruiter’s eye to hit first.
  • Pay attention to the details. Make sure there aren’t any typos or awkward-looking sections on your resume.

 

For resume tips, go here.

 

Remember that you’re dealing with seasoned recruiters with eagle eyes – which is why you should definitely get your resume reviewed. Drop by our office and make an appointment with us here.

 

Next step – print your resume on linen paper. Yes, it’s expensive, but it’s worth it. Linen paper has a nice, premium texture that looks and feels almost woven. It’s also got a creme-colored hue that looks a lot nicer than regular white paper. Finally, it’s thicker than white paper, so when that recruiters starts thumbing through his stack of resumes, yours will feel different and stick out.

Lastly, put your resumes in a classy padfolio. You know, one of those slick, black leather folders that give you instant street cred. You should start your investment and get them at the Uni’s bookstore – or Popular Bookshop.

 

  1. Do your research

 

Walking up to a company you know nothing about is like buying a train ticket to a location that you don’t even know exist. Fire up the internet and figure out what the company does and what people in your intended role do. Take notes and keep them in your padfolio or on your phone. Ideally, you’ll hit the career fair with a cheat sheet full of info on the companies you’re interested in.

 

  1. First Impression

 

You can’t just walk up to a recruiter and say, “Hi, what do you guys do?” That’s likely to get you a nice big blank stare and some awkward silence. Before you lead into talking or asking about the company and begging for a job or internship, you need to introduce yourself.

 

This moment is crucial as the first impression you make with the recruiter will form much of their initial judgements about you. It is when you should be able to smoothly and confidently deliver an introduction that includes your name, major, year in school, and why you’re interested in them. Only then should you start asking questions.

 

  1. Dress to Impress

 

You only get one first impression, so you must make every effort to have dress properly. If you look the part, your employers will already be impressed and will be more likely to see you as the right candidate for the job.

 

The way you dress for an interview says how precise, neat and professional you really are. Bad hygiene can ruin the world’s best outfit. It’s absolutely crucial for you take time to have a clean and fresh body or potential employers will think you’re sloppy and careless. Part of good hygiene is also smelling great when you walk to greet future employers.

 

Remember that you are marketing a product — yourself — to a potential employer!

 

Looking forward to your attendance at the Career Fair! See you there!
