6 Ways to Turn a Job Fair into a Job

Tip No. 2: Be prepared

If you show up to a job fair with a bunch of resumes in your hand and nothing else, you’re doing it all wrong. A resourceful job fair attendee will appear to be a resourceful employee, too. Make sure that you bring more copies of your resume than you would ever plan on handing out, and make sure they’re in a protective portfolio of some sort. Bring different versions of your resume if there’s a wide range of companies at the fair.

Other things to remember include letters of recommendation, business cards, a notepad, and a professional looking briefcase to carry it all. If the recruiter or hiring manager hands you brochures or business cards of their own, you want to look like you’re taking special care of these documents and not simply shoving them in your pocket.
