Attending a Career Fair? Get to Know Your Audience

It is spring career fair season! If you are looking to find an internship, a full-time job opportunity, or you simply want to network with employer contacts and practice your interviewing skills, you should certainly sign up to attend the in-person Career and Internship Fair AND the Virtual Career and Internship Fair. Attending a fair may feel a bit daunting, but you have nothing to lose and so much to gain from putting yourself in front of employers and recruiters.

The very best way to leave a lasting impression and to feel confident at the events, is to prepare. This means having a polished resume, dressing professionally, and practicing your elevator pitch for the inevitable line: “So, tell me about yourself”.  However, there is another very important piece of preparation that is often missed. Research employers! Employers want to hire individuals who show genuine interest and excitement for what they do. Show them that you know who they are and tell them why you want to be a valuable part of their organization and mission.

How to Research Employers Before the Fair:

  1. Visit the Career Fair event pages in Handshake and view the list of employers planning to attend the fair. On this page, you can also learn about the positions for which each company is hiring.
  2. Follow the employers that interest you in Handshake and visit their company profile page to learn more about each.
  3. Take some time to review the websites for those organizations that interest you most. Learn about their mission and vision as well as their company culture.
  4. Review company pages on LinkedIn and follow employers of interest. Consider connecting with others who work there, especially UNCW alumni and recruiters.

Coming to the career fairs armed with knowledge about employers with whom you plan to meet, will not only impress those you speak with, but will allow for more meaningful dialogue.
