- Use minimal cologne or perfume.
- Wear minimal jewelry.
Do Your Research
Think about what type of jobs you are interested in. Research job openings in your area and familiarize yourself with skills that are needed in those areas.
Prepare Your Statement to Recruiters
Keep your pitch 10 to 15 seconds long.
Let recruiters know things like your name, profession (or future profession), and your experience/skills.
Sending a simple thank-you note to each recruiter you meet goes a long way! This helps you stand out because you made a special effort.
Be sure you thank the recruiter for taking the time to speak with you and which job fair you attended with them.
