    How to Prepare for a Career Fair

    Download the Career Fair + app

    Career Fair + is a full-featured iPhone, iPad and Android app that puts the power to prepare for fairs in your hands. On the app, you will have the ability to scope out employers, examine the floor plan, gather tips on preparing for the fair, and review event details. Search for Career Fair Plus in the App Store or Google Play Store.

    Research companies and polish your resume

    Research companies you’re interested in and come prepared to ask specific questions that reflect your knowledge of each company. Bringing a pen, notepad, several copies of your resume and, if you have them, business cards is recommended. To ensure your resume is error-free and employer-ready, contact our peer career advisors to request a resume critique. If you find that a recruiter is not accepting resumes, ask about his or her application process.

    Practice your pitch and get a confidence boost

    Practice your 30-second pitch or introduction! Your pitch should offer a brief yet impactful message that highlights career interests, what you can offer to the workforce, and your goal for connecting with the individual you're pitching. An engaging pitch and firm handshake can help you market yourself and stand out to an employer.

    You may also consider visiting the ASK Oasis at the fair. Volunteers from the Alumni Sharing Knowledge (ASK) network are on hand at each career fair to help you prepare to approach employers and make a lasting impression, and to provide a last-minute confidence boost.
