HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE CAREER FAIR

Step 1: Research

Do research on the companies prior to the fair. Make a list of your top companies you hope to visit at the fair. Research those companies history, what positions they have open, what skills they are looking for, if they have full-time, part-time or internships available, what majors they are targeting and more. Also, be prepared to tell them why you are interested in their company. Your preparation is what will make you stand out from the crowd!

List of Employers: See Who's Coming!

Step 2: Attend an Inside Edition Workshop & Resume Blitz

Inside Edition Workshops will give you a brief overview of how to prepare, what to expect and the logistics of the fair. Employer representatives will be participating in the workshops to give professional tips. You will be able to interact with employers and ask them questions in a relaxed and personal setting.

The Resume Blitz will give you an opportunity to have your resume reviewed by career center staff and select employers prior to the fair.

Step 3: Prepare and Practice a 30 second Introduction

This is your quick introduction to the employer. State who you are, your major, the job you are interested in and what you can bring to their company.

Step 4: Your Resumes

Stop by the Michelin Career Center - Resource Center and have your resume reviewed.

Visit during our drop in hours, 1:30 pm – 3:45 pm Monday through Friday, or attend a Resume Blitz to have your resume reviewed.

Be sure to bring a MINIMUM of 15-20 copies of your resume to the fair. For the career fair you should use regular, not high quality, paper for your resume. There will not be a printer at the fair.

Step 5: Dress to Impress

Dress professionally. Wear the same attire you would for an interview. Also, be aware that some employers interview the next day. You may want to have a fresh shirt or change of clothes ready for interviewing the day after the fair.

There will be a backpack drop off area located behind registration. However, The Center for Career and Professional Development cannot be responsible for any lost or stolen valuables.

Step 6: The Approach

Be confident and prepared. Shake hands, look the employer in the eye and fire off your 30-second introduction telling them about yourself and why you are interested in their particular company. Don’t cover your nametag with your folders, hair, etc., smile and be yourself! Do not be afraid to ask questions. Be sure your cell phone is on vibrate or silent.

Step 7: Follow Up

Ask recruiters how they would like you to follow up. Be sure to do what the recruiter asks you to do.

Suicide prevention month

Suicide can be prevented

It only takes one moment, one connection

There are actions you can take to help prevent suicide.

  • Take the warning signs seriously. Do not ignore the signs in hopes they will go away.
  • Reach out. Show your concern. Don't worry about saying the wrong thing. Your genuine concern is what is important.
  • Ask if the person is thinking about suicide. Be direct. Be persistent and sensitive to solicit an answer.
  • Convey hope to the person who is struggling. Hope is the best defense against suicide.
  • Listen and accept the person's feelings calmly and without judgment.
  • Do not act shocked or argue with the person.
  • Don’t be sworn to secrecy.
  • Know the resources at Clemson University and in our community.
  • Offer to go with the person for help.
  • Do not leave the person alone. Find someone else who can help, such as family, friends, a religious leader, the Counseling Center (CAPS), a resident advisor or campus security.
  • File a CARE Report to link the person to university services
  • Tigers Together offers advocacy training to help groups and individual members of the Clemson family to become Suicide Prevention advocates.

Be a part of the solution. Attend different events being held this month to to learn more. View the flyer below.
