TIPS TO MAKE YOUR VISIT A SUCCESS
102 companies willl be on hand to recruit for jobs, internships, business and educational opportunities. To make the most of your visit we advise you to study the following information:
Develop a game plan to maximize your time at the expo. Make a list of target companies and map out your visit. Plan to visit with companies of interest even if they aren't recruiting for jobs in your field. Allow time to network and for unexpected opportunities and conversations.
Be prepared with questions for each recruiter. Expect to be asked, “Why do you want to work for our company?" Here are some other suggestions to help you stand out and be memorable:
Dress professionally. Use a firm handshake, a warm smile, good eye contact, and a strong voice. Gather business cards or contact information from each person of interest. Network with recruiters, volunteer staff and fellow job seekers in attendance to learn about other possibilities in your field.
