Visiting a Job Fair (VIDEO)


Job fairs work in some fields. Here are some things to do to prepare for going to one.

Summary

Job fairs.

I know a lot of people don't like going to them but, in some fields, they are really good for finding work. I thoroughly give you a show about preparing to go to a job fair if you've determined it is really a good place for you to be.

The 1st thing to do is see who is going to be there, see what firms are going to be represented there.
Number 2. Visit their website to look for jobs. Some of the jobs on the website may not correlate to the recruiters who are there. However, these are going to be people who will receive your resume, chat with you for a few minutes and then Pastor resume out to the person who might be recruiting for it.

In preparing, you're visiting the website to determine what firms are going to visit with while you are there, within visiting their website for particular types of jobs to fit your background so that (3) go to me with them.

When should you visit?

Let me as you question. If your HR person meeting with people from 9 AM until 4 PM, do you think there fresher earlier in the morning or at the end of the day? In mid day, some of them are cutting out to catch a bite of lunch so there are a few poor souls at their booth thinking to themselves, "I'm so tired. I just want to eat something."

You want to get there fairly early, even though that's what most of the people of there because, at the end of the day, it is hard for them to listen. All they want to do is go home because they are exhausted.

Purposefully, what you want to be doing is preparing. Knowing what they're looking for based upon what you are seeing on their website, tailor your resume for that particular job. That translates into, you need to do things to organize those resumes for when you visit so you are well prepared and can hear the resume to the recruiter.

Be patient. You're stuck waiting in line. You can whine about it. But, when you get to the front of the line, they will have noticed that you are a complainer and probably will listen as intently to you because no one likes hiring a complainer.

Be patient, don't whine. Just be prepared to sell yourself and create a short commentary about what you do. 30, maybe 45 seconds, thanking them for being out there. "It's gotta be rough to be here all day, but my background is ... I previously worked for so-and-so. I want to make sure that a copy of my resume and could see my face. Is there anything I can answer for you right now that might be helpful to you?"

Be prepared for their questions with descriptive your own, not an elevator pitch, "I CONQUER ALL SITUATIONS BY FIGHTING WITH PEOPLE." The typical elevator pitches to obnoxious. Ditch the pitch.

Figure out a way to successfully presenter credentials with a smile on your face, without fear on your face so that someone was there early juggling lots of people, will find it memorable.
