Planet Blue Action Sports Consultancy Job Fair Tips …
It is easy to walk into a job fair and be drawn like a moth to the biggest and most attractive booths sponsored by the largest and most established companies and ignore the lesser ones. Just remember that in the USA small companies, with less than 500 employees, generate the majority of jobs in America. With this in mind you should work your way through a job fair methodically visiting every booth, not just the ones with the flashing lights.
Walk up and ask questions about company activities and who are they looking for, before you talk about yourself. As this allows you to present yourself in the most relevant light.
Collect business cards from every company representative you speak to so you can follow up with an e.mail and a call when they are not so busy. As company staff will be involved in recruitment, you should also reach out to them for connections on your social media networking platforms and also remember to collect company brochures and collateral materials.
In addition to the exhibit hall, there will be group presentations by employers. On leaving each booth or at the end of the day, go through your notes while everything is still fresh in your mind. Review each company and what possibilities it may hold for you. Also review what have you learned from industry trends, new skill requirements, marketplace shifts and long term staffing needs. Plan to send e.mails and make follow up calls within the week to everyone with whom you spoke to.
