What is the Liberal Arts Fair?
The Center for Career and Professional Development partners with local, national and
regional organizations to create these events as an opportunity for YOU to interface
with employers looking for the best talent WKU has to offer.
When & Where?
Wednesday, March 21 12PM-3PM Downing Student Union, 3rd Floor WKU's Bowling Green
Who's Looking for What?
Recruiters will be looking for professional, poised students and graduates to fill
full- and part-time positions, co-op positions, and internships. The career fair is
also a great time to explore and discuss career options with recruiters.
What Should I Bring?
Bring copies of your current resume to distribute to recruiters. If you need resume
help, contact The Center for Career and Professional Development for assistance or
contact your Professional Development Specialist when she is on site in your academic
How Should I Dress?
Image isn't everything, but it's a lot. Business professional is best (Business suits,
slacks with shirt and tie, pants or skirt outfits, dresses).
Will I Get an Interview?
Generally, the career fair provides an initial contact with an organization. Formal
interviews may be scheduled at a later date.
How Do I Make the Most of a Job Fair?
Effective preparation and communication are key in ensuring your career fair success.
Research the participating companies and schools you are interested in prior to the
event. Learn about them, their available positions, and what they are looking for
in candidates. If you really want to go beyond the average, prepare a list of questions
to ask those specific companies.
What Should I do After the Job Fair?
Follow up by sending a thank you note a day or two later. Recruiters will meet dozens
of people, so make sure they don't forget you. This is not only polite but it also
lets the representative know you paid attention, are serious about the job, and are
the right person.
