6 Ways to Turn a Job Fair into a Job

6 Ways to Turn a Job Fair into a Job

Tip No. 1: Look the part

Clearly you’re looking for work, but you don’t want to look too unemployed. You want to look professional, dynamic, and put together. Agencies aren’t looking to perform charity work at job fairs. They’re looking to meet and snag the best candidates before their competition does.

What does that mean? Treat the job fair like an interview in all ways, including how you look. Women shouldn’t wear clothing that looks too casual or revealing, while men should leave the sneakers and five o’clock shadow at home. Part of the advantage of a job fair is that hiring managers are able to put a face to a name. You want to make the best first impression you can. In other words, wear a suit unless the type of work you’re seeking is extremely casual.
