Career Fair Information & Preparation

Not sure about your career plans?

If you are uncertain about your career direction, want to explore career possibilities, or want to gather information about employers:

  • Have a very brief presentation statement ready (name, class year, etc.; "I'm interested in learning more about . . . ").
  • Determine what questions you want answered before you approach an employer.
    • Some examples:
      • "Tell me what a typical day in your job is like."
      • "What skills, education and experience are required in this field?"
      • "What are typical entry-level jobs in this field?"
      • "What advice do you have for a student considering this field?"
