Before the Career Fair
Review of the list of schools attending. You can search by endorsement area.
Visit the websites of schools in which you are interested. The more you know about the school, the better your interaction with its recruiters!
Develop and prioritize your list of schools so that you can use your time as efficiently as possible.
Be sure to pick up the recruiters' business cards when possible so that you can make further contact, if needed.
At the Fair
Check-in at the registration table to pick up a packet with a map and information on known vacancies. Last minute vacancies will be posted nearby.
Plan to spend 2-3 hours meeting with recruiters. Most schools will conduct informal interviews at their booths while some may do formal interviews in a more private area.
Be prepared to wait in line at certain times of the day and with certain schools. Be patient and maintain your smile even when feeling frustrated.
Do not expect to be offered a contract at the fair, and if you are, let the recruiter know that you would like to make an on-site visit before making a decision or signing any document. Most schools will want to do an on-site interview before deciding on a specific candidate.
