The OCC Career Fair is tomorrow! Here is a checklist of everything you need to remember going into tomorrow.
Note: The Career Fair runs from 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. in the SRC Arena.
Print & Bring Copies of Your Resume
You’ve put in the hard work to make sure your resume is right! Now just make sure you print and bring copies!
Get to the Career Fair as early as you are able in order to speak to all the employers on your list. It also helps to get their early so you can identify on the map where all the employers are that you want to speak with.
Be Patient and Considerate
Lines to speak with some employers can get long. It’s important to be patient and professional in waiting so that you don’t blow your chance with the employer. It’s also important to be considerate to everyone you talk to. You never know who could have the lead you need for the job you want!
Ask for Business Cards or Contact Information
Once you’ve given your elevator pitch, make sure to seal the deal by giving them a copy of your resume and asking for a business card or contact information so you can keep in touch.
Follow up with Employers
After the Career Fair, follow up with employers whose business cards or contact information you received. This will show the employer you’re interested in them and what they have to offer. Career advisors are happy to help you with these emails!
We look forward to seeing you tomorrow from 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. in the SRC Arena for the Career Fair!
