Preparing for the Job Fair

on Wednesday, 09 September 2015 14:00.

 

We have been spotlighting various employers that will be at our job fair because knowing which employers are attending on September 16 will help you research job openings. Play the role of a detective and uncover some important details before the Job Fair.

1. What job openings does the employer have available?

Perhaps an obvious piece of information to know, but getting this information before the Job Fair will help you navigate the event. Check the company website or search the Internet using the company name and the word "career." Many companies post their jobs on a variety of websites, so you may need to be creative with your Internet searches to find the job postings.

2. Learn as much as you can about the employer.

Pour through the company website to learn about their mission statement and values. Do a general Internet search for additional information, news articles, etc. Use ladders.com and linkedin.com to gain further insight into the company. Compile the knowledge you discover about the employer to develop questions for the company representatives at the Job Fair. Not only will your knowledge base impress the company representatives, but it will also help you decide if this is a good fit for your career goals.

3. Find a connection.

Networking is a great way to get your foot in the door at any company. Talk to those in your network to see if anyone has a connection to the employer. Linkedin.com is also a great tool for discovering if anyone in your circle has a connection to the employer.

With over 50 employers attending the Job Fair, you will have plenty to research over the next week. We look forward to seeing you on September 16!
