HELPFUL TIPS

  • Take a look at our list of participating companies and review the career fair map. Make a list of organizations you are interested in and/or companies that are hiring students in your major.
  • Research them. Visit their websites. Find out more about their open positions through Port Triton and prepare a set of questions.
  • Attend the Career Fair Prep Series at the Career Center. Learn strategies and tips on effective communication, hand-shaking, how to approach employers and how to present a sharp resume to recruiters. RSVP through Port Triton.
  • Market yourself. Knowing how to market your skills and experiences on paper and in-person is critical to landing a job. Samples are available in the Career Center’s Triton Career Guide.
  • Prepare a well-written resume and practice your pitch.
  • Use business cards. This makes it easier for recruiters to log you into their system. Include your name, contact information, online presence, etc.  If companies are not collecting resumes, leave your business card.
  • Strategize your time at the Career Fair. Create a plan based on your schedule and/or the number of employers you would like to see. Prioritize your list of employersIf your schedule allows, you may find it easiest to start with the employers in which you’re less interested. This will allow you to hone your efforts so that you’re the most confident when you approach the employers you’re especially excited about. Be flexible with your time and allow for the reality of long lines when it comes to visiting highly sought-after companies.

MAKE A GREAT FIRST IMPRESSION

  • Look professional and employable from head to toe. Go the extra mile and get a haircut. Most importantly, do not wear what you would typically wear to class.  See page 23 of the Triton Career Guide for tips.
  • If you’re on a budget, make a trip to Ross, Marshall’s or your friend’s closet for professional attire.
  • Make sure to bring a professional folder. You’ll need a place to store a notepad and your resumes, keep notes organized and safely store business cards from those you meet.
  • Print and bring at least 20 flawless resumes. You may not connect with 20 employers, but it’s better to have a few spares, rather than run out during the event.
  • Bring your tablet or smart phone fully charged to showcase your e-portfolio.  See page 16 of the Triton Career Guide for tips to creating one. 

DAY OF THE CAREER FAIR

  • Try to arrive as early as possible. Student check-in is located Lyman Lane near the Perks entrance of Price Center. Make sure to have your student ID or know your PID number. Be sure to silence your phone before entering the Career Fair.
  • Walk up to organization representatives with confidence, a smile and firm handshake. Introduce yourself, be prepared to give your “pitch” and engage in a meaningful, two-way conversation with the representative.
  • Be aware of cues to end the conversation. Also, be considerate of the recruiter’s time and of other students that may be waiting in line behind you. Concentrate on talking to recruiters who seem to take a genuine interest in finding out more about you. Don’t get discouraged if you feel a recruiter has not shown interest in you. Some employers may “click,” others may not.  
  • As you meet, jot down important information, dates and contact info (but fill-in details later). You’ll want to be absolutely present whenever you have face-time with an employer. 
  • Ask for the representative’s business card so that you can write a follow-up note or email, connect with them on LinkedIn and add them to your professional network. Don’t take it personally if a recruiter does not give you a card.
  • At the end of the conversation, be sure to thank the recruiter for attending the Career Fair and for taking the time to meet with you.
  • Immediately after your conversation, take a moment to fill-in additional notes about your discussion.  Include any information you received that you feel will be helpful to reference at a later date.
  • Take frequent breaks. While you are in line, take time to review any notes you have on the company you’ll be meeting with and to collect your thoughts. You’ll want to be at the top of your game before each new interaction. Good luck!
