How to make the most of the Fair
Tips and advice from Cathryn Jobson, Employer Liaison Officer
- The Fair is a good place to get a feel of what the job market is like at the moment. Even if you are still uncertain about the direction in which you want to go or do not feel hugely interested in the companies present, attendance is still worthwhile since it is an opportunity to talk to the company reps who will be successful graduates themselves. This is a great opportunity to find out about their experience of job hunting. Furthermore you may find that a company that did not immediately spark your interest actually turns out to be your ideal.
- The Fair is an opportunity to network and gain inside information. It is always a good idea to do a little background research, take a look at web sites, this will enable you to ask informed questions.
Whilst there is only an outside chance that the recruiter will remember you, should you apply, you will be able to pick up tips about the company culture and selection procedures
- Don’t be afraid to ask probing questions, getting a good insight into the company will help you in the application process.
- Don’t be afraid to ask for the names of the representatives, you never know when you may want to contact them. Furthermore if you do get to the interview stage it would be an impressive line if you could say “when I was speaking to…… at our Careers Fair”!
- Finally whilst you would not be expected to wear your interview suit to the Fair it is a good idea not to be too scruffy.
