Strategies for Prescott Job Fairs


If you haven’t already, you should check out local careers fair to hear more about opportunities. When you are applying for Prescott jobs you need to find out about as many opportunities as possible. Career fairs require some planning, so here are three strategies to help you make the most of them.

1. Research the career fair: take some time to check out which companies and organizations will have booths at the fair. Find ones you think will be a good fit and cross off ones you aren’t interested. This way you will maximize your time at the fair and ensure a productive visit.

2. Dress and act professionally: The Wall Street Journal recommends treating the career fair like a job interview. That is, dress (business attire) and act like you would for an interview, and do the sort of preparation you would do before one. It is also common for recruiters to put you through a proto-interview when you talk to them, so it is important to be ready. These can also help you for the real interview if the company is interested.

3. Don’t be shy: talking to new people, especially to people who could have sway over your employment, can be frightening for some people. Overcome that anxiety and talk with representatives and recruiters; otherwise, you won’t be accomplishing anything.
