Is there a job fair coming up near you? ABC Solutions has a job fair for clients of the company coming up very shortly. What should you expect? What should you bring? What should you bring? Well, it's always a great idea to bring multiple copies of your resume to a job fair. Just like any interview, learn about the companies that will be there (at least the ones that you're interested in speaking to). Prepare a few questions that you will have for/about the company. Make sure to ask about all opportunities available to you and mention some of your experience that pertains to them. It would be nice to mention something about the company that you read and would like more info about. Bring business cards if you have any, and feel free to take some from them. That way you can thank them and remind them of who you are after the fact. Keeping in touch is the best way to establish rapport with a business. As far as clothing, business casual is typically fine. A nice shirt, khakis or some dress pants, flats or low heels, etc. Feel free to look back at the blog about what to wear to an interview to guide you. For college students, there are second hand clothing stores that could provide you with options for interview attires. Some colleges have closets that will provide you with interview attire that you could borrow, I know Georgia Tech has that option available. Stores such as Plato's College, Finder's Keepers, Rag-O-Rama, Alexis Suitcase and more have options that are available at low costs to you. So, if you're looking for clothing, consignment shops are the way to go. As far as job fairs, treat it like an interview that's slightly informal. Another piece of advice is to get your elevator pitch ready because these companies are seeing plenty of people daily, so you need a spiel of information that will make you standout. Good luck!
