How to Prepare for Career Fair (Tuesday & Wednesday)

We’re looking forward to seeing you this week at the Employer Connections Fair at the TopScreen Shot 2013-09-23 at 8.40.02 AM of The Hop, from noon to 4 pm. Over 100 organizations will be attending to scout for potential employees.

We encourage you to research organizations participating in the fair before you go. You can access the fair directory here. We also recommend using the Library’s recommended resources to study up on organizations that are coming to the fair. Marketline Advantage is especially useful for researching for-profit organizations; check out the library’s non-profit research guide to prepare for meeting with employers in the non-profit room on Tuesday.

Engage, give a warm smile, engage – no need to sound rehearsed, as if you’re reading from a script, but do come up with an opening statement that lets the representative know that you’re not just simply milling around, waiting for someone to come to you and do all the talking.

“Hello. My name is Jane, and I’m a studio art major. I read an article in the Brazen Careerist recently about your graphic design internship being one of the best in the country. Can you tell me a little more about what you look for in an intern?”

Even if you don’t know as much as you should about a company, use openness and enthusiasm to spin a conversation in your favor.

“I understand you are hiring Analysts; what’s a typical day look like for an Analyst?”

Be bold and pull at common threads. From your research, find things you have in common – maybe the employer is a Dartmouth Alum, or perhaps community leader of an organization you’re a member of in college. If you can connect on a deeper level with an employer, they will see you as a person with a vested interested in their company, rather than just another resume in a stack of applications.

Good luck!
