7 Tips for Preparing for the Internship & Career Fair

  1. Drop in or call CTM at 757.352.4926 to schedule a career coaching appointment
  2. Join us in COM Suite 250 the week of March 18 – 22 for our Career Fair Blitz. Various info sessions are available to get you career-fair ready.
  3. Research: Choose the top five to ten employers you want to talk to at the fair and explore their official websites. Start by learning the company’s mission and values, key leadership, and products or services. Then, follow these companies on LinkedIn prior to the fair to learn about recent company activity, accomplishments, and overall company culture.
  4. Resume: Wow prospective employers by tailoring resumes for your top five to ten employers. Make sure you include your most relevant skills throughout your resume and prove those skills with experiences. Be able to reference your experiences as you are interacting with employers.
  5. Elevator Pitch: Your elevator pitch should be the start of your conversation with an employer. An elevator pitch is meant to tell the employer who you are, your educational background, your key skills, and why you want to work for them.
  6. Career Fair Networking: A career fair is just as important as an interview. Your first impression is everything, and you want to stand out among your peers. Research sample interview questions at glassdoor.com and other sites connected to your industry or a specific job to get you thinking about a conversational direction.
  7. Follow Up: Make sure you obtain the recruiters business card or contact information and request to connect with them on LinkedIn. Within 24 hours of meeting an employer, send a thank you email.
