Six Tips for a Successful Job Fair

Job fairs are a convenient way to make contact with a variety of employers in one place at one time. The Rockwall Job Fair was established to connect job seekers with companies that are seeking professional candidates like you. Use the following tips to help you get the job you want.

1. First impressions go a long way so make sure to dress professional. You will be meeting with potential employers face to face so you want to present a well- groomed appearance. Some applicants make the mistake of dressing like you would be on the job, while, the actual dress code might be more casual, at a Job Fair it is recommended to wear a business suit or dress pants, shirt and tie for men and a suit, dress, skirt or nice pants for women.

Common Job Fair Interview Questions

Job Fair interviews are different than typical job interviews. Hiring managers are trying to meet with several candidates for various jobs, in a small time frame. Often you will have to sell yourself quickly, so make sure to practice your elevator speech.

An elevator speech is a brief message all about you. Basically, it is your commercial and should include who you are, what you are looking for and how you can benefit a company. Because an elevator speech is short, one to two minutes or less, a quick introduction explaining which job you are interested in and why you are qualified might be all you have time for. One of the most common questions at a job fair is "Tell me about yourself" so make sure to craft a brief but powerful sales pitch that summarizes the value and abilities you can offer an employer.

1. What type of work have you done that would prepare you for this job?
2. Tell me some challenges you have faced in your career and how have you overcome them?
3. What do you consider your greatest strengths and weaknesses?
