Individaul students AND classes are encouraged to attend! Why dress casual? This is not a job fair! It's a chance to practice professional communication skills and learn about career tracks within specific companies/industries. The event is limited to 10 employers; they may have current openings, but they will also be available to answer questions you may have about their company/industry. Why should you be interested? You can practice professional communication skills, learn about career tracks within specific companies/industries, and apply for part-time or full-time job openings. How do you approach an employer? First, consider your body language. Take a deep breath, try to relax, and smile! A positive attitude goes a long way. How do I start the conversation? Sample questions you may want to ask are: What entry level positions in (enter your career field) are available in your company and what kinds of people are you looking for to fill them? What types of people do well within your organization? What are the key skills you are looking for in new hires? What degrees or programs of study are most desirable within your company? What types of experiences are most valuable to you when hiring (leadership, research, volunteering, etc)? What part-time or internship opportunities does your company/organization offer? Career Services provides individual career appointments as well as classroom presentations on a variety of job related topics.
