Spring is just around the corner and job fairs are in full swing. Job fairs are a great way to network and hand deliver your resume to prospective employers. The conversations you have will also be good practice for future job interviews.
Some tips to remember when attending a job fair:
- Dress professionally to make a positive impression.
- Bring several copies of your resume.
- Collect business cards from people you meet and follow up with them afterward.
- Come prepared to talk about yourself and ask relevant questions. Interactions will likely be brief, so make them count!
