Job Fair Resources for Students:

  • If you've never been to a job fair, or it's been awhile since you last attended, review these 8 Tips for Navigating Job Fairs.
  • On the same document, review the list of questions to learn more about the employer, company, or industry.
  • Come dressed to impress. Formal business attire is not required, but we recommend leaving the sweats at home and selecting a neat, clean shirt and jeans/pants. Vests and assessories are also good calls. Don't have any of these items? See if you can borrow some from a friend/roommate/family member.
