6 Ways to Turn a Job Fair into a Job

6 Ways to Turn a Job Fair into a Job

Steve Berman

June 08, 2011

Tip No. 4: Do your homework

Arriving prepared and treating job fairs like preliminary interviews means more work than most people are willing to put in. It’s not enough to know the list of agencies appearing. You should know what each agency does, what job openings they have listed, and (most importantly) your selling point for each agency.

Remember, hiring managers are like anyone else — the easier the better. They aren’t going to go out of their way to find you a job just because you put on some nice clothes and drove to a convention center. Make their lives easier by having something ready to say when you hand them your resume (and business card, if you have one). Here’s an example for someone speaking with the hiring manager for a tech agency:

Job Fair Attendee: “Hello, my name is Jane Smith, nice to meet you.”

Hiring Manager: “Hi, nice to meet you.”

Job Fair Attendee: “I’m particularly interested in the executive assistant position I saw listed on your agency website. I have several years of experience working for software agencies, both in office management and arranging travel for executives, so I’m aware of the expertise a growing IT firm like yours needs.”

    I understand the job market inundated with thousands upon thousands of qualified applicants. They have the ideal education, they have the relevant skils for a particular industry. Is anybody else paying attention to all these thousands of people with similar backgrounds and credentials?

    I disagree that the world seems oyster for young enthusiasts Finding a proper job is rather difficult now, especially if you are a young specialist with no experience in the field you'd like to work in. Employers usually want highly skilled and experienced workers for the smallest salaries possible. That's unfair. I'm so tired to live in "lack of money" state. And I'm glad there are services like personal loans without credit check that help young people deal with financial difficulties.
