Preparing for a Career Fair

When approaching an employer's table, make sure you have prepared a 30 second "commercial" to introduce yourself and market your strengths. You will want to tell the employer 1) your name, 2) your major or academic background, 3) what position you are seeking, and 4) why you are qualified or why you should be considered. Also prepare questions for the employer. The questions should not be anything that should already be known such as what they do or for what positions they are recruiting. You should also avoid salary related questions unless the employer brings up the topic first. Sample questions are 1) what are they looking for in an applicant? 2) what can a new employee expect in their first year on the job? 3) what is the work environment like at this organization, 4) what is their hiring time line and process for the position?
