Job Fairs and You

Here's a good item from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution about how to get the most out of job fairs. Apparently, there's a job fair "season," and we're in the midst of it. Columnist Amy Lindgren provides ten tips for getting the most out of them:
  1. Choose the right fairs.
  2. Make a plan.
  3. Prepare your materials.
  4. Decide what you want from each fair.
  5. Practice your conversation points.
  6. Don’t lead with “What jobs do you have open?”
  7. Stick to the subject.
  8. Pick up handouts, but don’t make that your focus.
  9. Don’t overstay your welcome.
  10. Follow up.
Details on what's behind each item are in her full column, here.
