How do I prepare for a JobFest?

Recruiters say research is the key to a successful job search. Stand out from the crowd by picking up job fair prep materials in advance.  Having your resume reviewed by a professional and attending a JobFest prep workshop.  

What do I wear?

Suits are recommended, business casual is required. Keep in mind, however, "business casual" does not indicate "classroom casual." Organizations say first impressions count, so give some thought to what you wear.

There are so many organizations present. Where do I begin?

  • Develop your personal two minute commercial: a brief overview of you, your background and career interests. Hi, my name is ___ and I noticed that you are recruiting for ___ type of opportunities. I am interested in this position for these reasons.
  • Get familiar with the layout: take a moment to review the database of employers and the floor map found in your packet.
  • When you are ready, look for the organizations on your list. Introduce yourself with a smile and a handshake and begin your commercial.
  • If you are feeling nervous or need a break, stop by the Student Career Development table and we can help you practice or provide self confidence talks.

What should I bring to JobFest?

Bring copies of your resume, portfolio (if you have one), pen and notebook. Bring additional resumes to present to each employer. You will present yourself as a prepared job seeker should the employer request a resume.
