Is It Worth It?
The great question! On one hand, there are over 150 employers all "recruiting" and making interview decisions. However, for most students frustration comes from not seeing their major be recruited or by not understanding the purpose of the fair. The fair is not a place to get jobs, it is a place to make contacts and to try and secure interviews. It is true, certain majors are recruited (accounting/finance, computer science, industrial technology). However, this does not mean you are not wanted by employers. The secret is to know what the company does and where you will fit in. Your introduction will be the key to your career fair success.
I am a freshmen, should I go?
UNI Career Services has worked with employers in understanding that they need to invest in freshmen. In a few years, you will be the target of most employers. To understand where to go as a freshmen, watch for the "Freshmen Friendly" signs attached to booths. The signs are bright green and easy to find.
- Who will be at the fair
- What type of paper should my resume be on? Really, plain heavy weight white paper is the best.
- What should I wear? Look nice. Typically, the older in school you are the nicer you will dress. Seniors = suits, freshmen = polo/khaki.
