Follow these tips to get the most out of a job fair:
Just like everything else in the job search process, the application is an important component. An employer will learn a lot about you from your application and how you complete it. Make sure you take the time to project a positive and professional image.
Use common sense when completing the application. By not following directions, you are telling a potential employer that you won’t follow them on the job either. A messy application shows that you don’t have respect for your work or for other people’s time; vague information and spelling errors prove that you can’t pay attention to details and follow through an entire project; and listing specific salary requirements tells them you are rigid and inflexible – all things most employers want to avoid.
