The How-To on Job Fairs



Job fairs, we’ve all been to one, right? Wrong; there are many people who have never been to a job fair and others who have been but don’t know how to make the most out of the experience. That’s what Illinois workNet is here to help you! 

Job fairs are an opportunity for people in any situation to network and potentially find new employment. This is a time where you can find Professionals, Students, Unemployed Individuals, Veterans, and others all gathered together with one goal in mind: SUCCESS!

Some people have no problems making great connections and showing off their talents at a job fair, but others may lack the social skills or knowledge of how job fairs work to fully take advantage of the benefits. There are many resources out there that can help, but it’s hard to target those that are actually helpful and reliable.

Here are tips that can help anyone make the most out of their job fair experience.

Job Fair Preparation:
  1. Pre-Register – Some job fairs require you to register, check out the event website or flyer to find out if you need to and how.
  2. Dress for Success – You will be meeting people who could be potential employers, make a good first impression by dressing business casual or business professional.
  3. Bring Copies of your Updated Resume – Many employers will ask to see your resume, make sure you bring enough copies to go around. Be prepared that some employers cannot accept hard copies of your resume.
  4. Research Employers – Get a list of employers that are going to be at the job fair, research their company so you know a little about them beforehand. Prepare questions to ask them beforehand.
  5. VETERANS – Use Illinois workNet Resources to translate your Military Skills to Civilian Skills so you can let employers will understand what skills you have that could benefit their company.
  6. Create your 30-Second Elevator Speech – This is your opening statement to employers that gives them an idea of where you’ve worked, what skills you have, and how you can benefit their company as an employee.
Tips to stand out:
  1. Time Management – Make sure you allot yourself enough time to make it to all of the booths, or at least those you know you’d like to visit.
  2. Network – Mingle with the other people at the event, not just the employers. Networking includes potential employers, past employers and co-workers.
  3. Get Business Cards – Following up with Potential Employers is your job, make sure you get their business card so you have contact information.
  4. Act Professional – Watch how you act and behave, stand up straight, don’t fidget, do not chew gum, and speak clearly.
  5. Stay Positive – Being with so many others that are also job-searching can be overwhelming, but keeping a positive attitude when engaging with others and the employers will show confidence.
  6. Carry a Folder or Portfolio – Having a folder or portfolio will keep your resume easily accessible while also giving you something to store employer handouts and literature in.
After the Job Fair:
  1. Take Notes – Write down notes about conversations you had, who you spoke to, opportunities you encountered, and anything else you don’t want to forget.
  2. Follow-Up – Now that you’ve made some connections, follow-up with them via email or LinkedIn with a ‘Thank You’ letter. This will ensure employers will remember you while building a relationship with them.
  3. Keep Track – Create a system or spreadsheet that you can use to keep track of employers you’ve contacted, potential job leads, when and how and to who you sent your resume, etc.
Next time you’re at a job fair, make sure to remember these tips so you can put your best foot forward and make the most of it!
