"Any employer is still going to remember a student's first impression, first words, and how they conduct themselves. Think Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks. He is articulate, thoughtful, and a grad of Stanford University…but most people cannot get past the emotional interview he gave. Fifteen seconds…fifteen seconds…and he is now branded by many by that perception. Be it right or wrong…it is the way it is."
"Dress like you want a career"
"Students should dress appropriately - this is potentially their first interview. First impressions make a lasting impression."
"Share a personal experience that would allow the employer to 'visualize' you and your abilities in the available position."
"Do your homework ahead of time on each company so you know which companies you want to focus on and speak with. Then only go to those companies on your list instead of wandering around aimlessly and asking companies 'What do you do?' It will help you make the most efficient use of you time."
"Research the companies. By doing so you'll know what business the company is in and a bit about the culture."
"To remember the old basics that still hold true today…a firm handshake, good eye contact, manners, and to present themselves confidently and professionally."
"I just wanted to thank you and the career center for giving me the opportunity to network with future employers. I've learned a lot as a Business Major when it comes to professional etiquette and learning how to properly engage and interact with the employers and past alumni who stand before me."
"I was nervous when talking about myself to other people, I noticed that this was one of my weaknesses and decided that the career fair would be a great way to practice. While talking with the company they offered me an interview! I went in for practice and left with a career opportunity!!! It was a great learning experience."
"UNCW's career fair not only provided a showcase of employers, but also afforded me the opportunity to sharpen my interviewing skills by talking and learning how to communicate effectively with a potential employer. The career fair gives students the chance to explore different employment opportunities that they may not have considered initially and for me, the career fair secured my first job upon graduation!"
