WHAT TO BRING

  • An up-to-date professional CV – max 2 pages – have you had it checked by a Careers Advisor?
  • A list of the companies you want to target, numbered in order of priority.
  • Some knowledge of your target companies – what they do, qualifications they need, where they are located, latest news etc.
  • Phone, tablet or paper to take notes after visiting each stand. Ask for a business card and if none is available, write down the name and job role of each person you talk to. Take notes on what you learn about the company. This will be really useful later.

 

 

Top Tips for making a good impression

 

Introduce Yourself:

Practice what you will say about yourself – your name, the degree that you are studying, your relevant work experience & your key skills – from part time jobs or hobbies/activities.

 

Be Professional:

Dress smartly. Ask relevant questions about the company. Listen well so you answer their questions fully. Make the most of this chance to connect and leave a good impression.

 

Think Outside the Box:

Don’t assume a company isn’t interested in your degree – most companies have jobs in a variety of roles, perhaps you need a different contact name in the company for your area. Ask about opportunities.

 

Stay Friendly & Polite:

Smile and speak clearly: The Careers Fair can be noisy, so make sure to put extra volume in your voice. Remember that you know your knowledge and experiences best, so let them know. Finish by thanking the employer for their time!
