Job-Seeker Career Fair Do’s and Don’ts
Here are some critical career fair do’s and don’ts.
Do keep an open mind about career opportunities with firms you had not originally thought about speaking with.
Don’t be afraid to walk right up to a recruiter and introduce yourself. Have confidence, but don’t interrupt a conversation the recruiter is having with another job-seeker.
Do car-pool or attend the fair with your friends, but once at the fair, do go it alone so that you can maximize your impact and implement your plan.
Don’t ever say anything negative about yourself, your former employers, or your school.
Do ask questions about the organization, but don’t ask about salary or benefits.
