If you have been applying to a lot of jobs and not getting the results or feedback (in many cases not hearing anything at all) you desire, how can a live career fair really help you get a great job? For one, you get to meet real recruiters who have real jobs and want to make real hires. This is all you need to know. But just like the online application that may not yield a great job, a trip to the AMWAY Center on November 18th without being prepared is something you want to avoid. This event is a one-time opportunity to make a great impression not only to find a job but get real career education.
To make this event successful, here are a few tips:
- DRESS LIKE YOU MEAN IT.
Your first impression to these live recruiters IS the most important thing you control to GET THE EMPLOYERS ATTENTION.
- DO YOUR RESEARCH.
Once you get their attention, make sure you have done your research so you can talk about specific jobs they have open. Do your research on each company before you come to the AMWAY and make notes. We update our website www.orlandojobs.com/jobfair with the employers regularly.
- KEEP GOOD EYE CONTACT.
Keep good eye contact and listen to what they recruiter is saying. Be prepared to answer any job-related questions with your experience. Use real examples to describe yourself. For example, if asked do you have management skills, the answer is not yes. Instead use your real experience. “I have 4 years of managing a team of 8 customer service representatives. My team in the 2015 was ranked #4 out of 543 nationwide.”
- SHOW INTEREST.
Let the recruiter know that you very interested in the job and would like to know what next steps may look like. DO NOT FAIL TO DO THIS. Make good notes of your conversation so you can reference that in future correspondence.
- FOLLOW UP.
Get a business card from the recruiter so you can follow up with them ASAP after the job fair. When following up, attach your resume and reiterate your excitement for the job and your matching experience.
- ATTEND THE CAREER EXPO.
We have outstanding speakers again this year and they will help you really understand and solve many of your job seeking challenges. DOWNLOAD the career speaker sessions here. Lisa Maile’s session at 12:45 is Power Interviewing: Present the Strongest, Most Marketable YOU! is a can’t miss session. All sessions are free.
