How to Prepare for a Career Fair

Research companies you’re interested in and come prepared to ask specific questions that reflect your knowledge of each company. Bringing a pen, notepad, and several copies of your resume.

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.

Visit the Career Center's Peer Career Coaches for a resume review. Peer Career Coaches provide resume and cover letter assistance, and can answer questions about Handshake, LinkedIn, interview prep, and other Career Center resources. Bring multiple copies of your most up-to-date resume to the fair.
