Career Fairs provide employers to meet with many students informally in a relatively short period of time. For students, attending Career Fairs provides an opportunity to network with prospective employers, obtain information about various industries, and generate a list of contacts. Career Fairs can also provide you with a personal opportunity to express your interest in a company. Never underestimate the personal power of sharing your resume with an employer representative in person.
A question we always hear from undergraduates: “As a freshman, aren’t I too young to go to a career fair?” Our answer is always a resounding, No! It’s never too early to learn to network to begin talking to others about your interests and goals and to applying for open positions when appropriate.
