Attending the career fair

In just a few short weeks, potential employers will fill the gym at the ARC and student will put on their most professional outfits. The ACES & Science Career Fair is almost here! As a student, it’s easy to be a bit nervous for the career fair. From one student to another, here are some tips for a smooth and successful career fair.

1. Do your research.
Do your research and know ahead of time which employers you want to talk to. If there is a company you are really interested in, find out more about their organization and see what positions they are hiring for.

2. Refine your resume.
Update your resume and bring it in to Career Services’ drop-in hours to get tips on how to improve it.

3. Just go!
Even if you’re just a freshman, go to the career fair. I went as a freshman and honestly had no idea what I was doing. While it was overwhelming and a bit scary that year, when I went back as a sophomore, I knew exactly what to expect and had a plan of attack.

The ACES & Sciences Career Fair will be on October 6 from 1:30 to 6 p.m. at the ARC. You never know what opportunities you might discover! Good luck!
