  • Dress for Success – Dress for a job fair as you would for a job interview
  • Introduce yourself and be prepared to give your “Career Pitch” – Summarize in a few sentences what skills you can bring to the employer and what experience you have
  • Bring Copies of your Resume – You can bring multiple resumes that are custom tailored to different positions that you are interested in
  • Be Enthusiastic – Even if you are nervous, remember to smile and keep a positive attitude
  • Ask Questions – Employers are looking for candidates who are truly interested in their company
  • Collect Business Cards – As you wrap up the interview with the recruiter, thanking them for their time, ask for a business card so you have the recruiter’s full name and contact information
