Tips for Attending a Career Fair:

Dress professionally – First impressions are critical. Job fair dress should be either "business casual" or "business." If you have a suit, plan to wear it to the fair. If you do not have a suit, dress slacks, a button down shirt and a tie are appropriate for men and dress slacks or a skirt and a button down shirt or knit top are appropriate for women. Worn out clothing, jeans, gym shoes, low-cut blouses, and skirts that fall above the knee are NOT appropriate dress for a job fair.

Résumés - Be sure to bring several copies of your (error free) résumé, as well as a portfolio or folder to carry your résumé in and place business cards into. Also remember to bring a pen or pencil, a notepad and breath mints.

Introduce yourself – Prepare a brief 30-second "commercial" about who you are and why you are interested in the company. Rehearse your commercial before you come to the fair. Use good eye contact and practice your handshake.

Research companies prior to attending the fair - View the list of participating organizations and begin studying the ones that interest you in advance of the job fair. Visit company websites. Check current job openings to get an idea of what skills and education are required to work for that company.

Business Card Etiquette – Ask for a business card after meeting the employer. Review the card to make sure you have the correct information and then place the business card in your wallet or handbag. Do not put the card in your back pocket.


Prepare for the Fair!
  • Schedule an appointment with NPC Career Services to update your résumé and participate in a mock interview.
