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.
