Student Tips For Attending A Career Fair

  • Check the Career & Internship Fair event in Life@Fairfield to learn what companies are attending.
  • Develop an elevator pitch to answer the question, “tell me about yourself?”
  • Identify and research companies of interest and prepare questions in advance
  • Make sure your resume is up to date and bring 15-20 copies
  • Dress professionally and bring a portfolio to carry your resume, notepad, and a pen.
  • Programs are available that will include a diagram of the floor layout. Get to the RecPlex early so you have time to review it.
  • There will be a LinkedIn photo booth so students can get a professional-looking photo taken.
  • Ask employers for their contact information or business card so you can follow up with them after the Career Fair.
  • After each discussion with an employer, write down a few notes that you can use when you follow up with them.
  • Write a thank you note to employers who provided contact information and follow up on any activities discussed.
  • Make an appointment with a counselor in the Career Center, College of Arts & Sciences or Dolan School to develop a strategy for your career after Fairfield University.
