Last week our colleague Rhonda Kosusko developed and facilitated some career workshops to help students prepare for this week’s Employer Showcase event on Tuesday September 20th (from 12:30-3:30 in Moseley in case any students are wondering!). One of these events was “How to Work a Career Fair.”
I’m so glad I had the opportunity to sit in on this presentation, since I know I still get overwhelmed thinking about networking in a career fair with potential employers! Rhonda covered everything from preparing before the fair, how to talk with recruiters at the fair and how to appropriately follow up after the fair is over. Ashley and I even had the opportunity to share our “30-Second Commercials” with the students, who in turn spent a few minutes getting their elevator speeches together!
I’m excited to see the students at the fair tomorrow and see their preparation and commercials in action!
