Career Fair Etiquette

Career Fair Etiquette

Do:

  • Take advantage of the websites listed on the display page to get an idea of who is coming and what type of jobs the employer is interested in.
  • Present yourself with professionalism, enthusiasm, and confidence at all times. The person you meet in the bathroom may be a recruiter you see later in the day!
  • Explore every organization that sparks your interest
  • Take breaks when you need them
  • Make notes about each visit and regroup before approaching the next recruiter
  • Focus on what you can do for the employer not what the organization can do for you
  • Spend as much time as you can at the career fair to make the most of this networking event
  • Turn cell phones off


Don't:

  • Give your resume immediately to the employer as a means of introduction
  • Chew gum
  • Walk up to an employer and expect them to take control of the conversation
  • Congregate with your friends where the employer can watch you
  • Ask about salary initially
  • Accept phone calls/texts while you are visiting with an employer.
