6 Quick Tips To Be Successful At A Job Fair 

1. Proper attire for job fairs


Dress to impress it's that simple. If you can't afford a suit, there are always resell shops that will have professional business clothes for a discounted price.


2. Go to the job fair knowing what you are applying for 


Be ready to have some questions about the position that you are applying for.


3. Do some research on the position


Do your homework and try to do some background research on the position you are applying for.


The last job fair we had a lot of people showed up and applied for everything. We prefer for people to apply for a particular position they have experience with.

4. Take the time to write a resume


Writing a resume will take some time to perfect, but make sure you don't have spelling and grammar errors. One simple mistake on your resume can cost you the interview.


5. Don't be lazy with your application, because you're not the only one trying to get the position


If you rush through your application that will show the hiring managers you aren't serious about taking time to stand out.


6. You need to stand out from the rest!


The competition for good jobs is very tough, but in order to make yourself look good at a job fair, do everything you can to make the hiring managers remember you in a good way.


Maintain eye contact, have a firm handshake, send a thank you email after an interview, follow-up and leave your resume.


Always, always say THANK YOU.
