Career Expo Prep Week: Jan. 31 – Feb. 4

The Career Expo is a great way to connect with employers for internships and full-time opportunities! We expect over 150 employers looking to network with students of all majors! This event is held once per semester and is an opportunity for you to present yourself professionally in person to a potential employer while showcasing your communication skills. The keys to a successful job fair experience are preparation and follow-up. Here is a checklist to help you prepare!

  • Research the list of participating employers through Handshake.
  • Attend workshops offered during Career Expo Prep Week.
  • Have your resume reviewed during the ASCC drop-in hours Monday-Friday 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. Register for one on Handshake.
  • Prepare your personal “30-second Introduction.”
  • Make sure you have professional attire ready. Check out the Cougar Closet for FREE professional clothing options.
  • Bring a padfolio/folder and several copies of your resume to share with employers.
  • Don’t forget to ask for business cards at the fair so you can follow up with thank-you notes.
