  1. Bring your Resume: Prepared job seekers have clean, well-written, and professional resumes. Sharing your resume is a great way for employers to learn about your qualifications and collect your contact information.

  1. Research Employers: Learn about the companies that are attending the fair. You’ll impress the employers with your knowledge and you’ll appear more interested in joining their team.
  1. Prepare Questions to Ask: Employers appreciate professional questions at a Career Fair. Prepare questions to learn more about a company and express your interest in the organization.
  1. Practice your Handshake: Confident handshakes are necessary for a good first impression. Perfect a firm, but not crushing, handshake before the event.
