Fall 2015 college to career fair

College to Career Fair Specifics:

What is the College to Career Fair?

The Center for Career and Professional Development  is partnering with local, national and regional organizations to create the 2015 College to Career Fair. This event is an opportunity for YOU to interface with employers looking for the best talent WKU has to offer. 

When & Where?

Wednesday, Oct 21, 12PM - 3PM
Downing Student Union 3rd Floor

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 building.

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.
