On Campus - Careers Fairs

  • Try to attend relevant careers fairs at your university - they are a great way to supplement your online research.
  • Make notes beforehand on who you want to see and what you want to find out.
  • Recruiters at careers fairs are always impressed by students who have already begun to research their company.
The candidates who impress us are the ones who have researched the companies attending the fair, therefore know who you are and what you can offer.
