A job fair (or career fair/expo) is an event which unites employers and recruiters with prospective student job seekers in the school environment. Employers typically set up tables or booths with information about their company and available positions. Students can drop of resumes, appeal to potential employers, and exchange contact information and business cards. Many colleges and universities sponsor job fairs throughout the year through their career centers. It is important to present yourself well at job fairs since the people you are interacting with may have a say in whether or not to call you for an interview. Remember to be polite and courteous but also articulate and confident. Job fairs are a great way to plan your summer employment in advance by scoping out a variety of options in one convenient location. Landing a summer job in advance is a great way for piece of mind, as the closer you get to the summer months, the more competition you may have.
