PREPARE FOR THE FAIR

WHAT TO EXPECT​ 
  • Head to the registration and check-in table in the north lobby of the Student Center (2121 Euclid Avenue) anytime between 9 AM and 2 PM. Most students make a plan to come in and out as their class schedules allow. We recommend attending well before 2 PM to give yourself enough time to connect with employers! 

  • Employer tables will be located both in the Student Center Atrium and in the Glasscock Ballroom. Make sure you check out our Fair Map before the event to see where each employer will be located!

HOW TO PREPARE
  • Register on Handshake before the fair to:

    • Receive helpful information, so you feel prepared and confident heading into the fair

    • ​Learn more about the participating employers and determine who you'd like to prioritize meeting with

    • Experience a quick, easy check-in on the day of the fair

  • Stop by our office in RW 280 to Consult a Peer, anytime between 9 AM to 4 PM Monday through Friday. Great for resume reviews, quick questions, networking resources, help with your elevator pitch and more.

TIPS FOR THE DAY OF THE FAIR
  • Dress to impress! Wear professional attire and bring a dark, plain folder to hold your resumes. Visit our Pinterest for more ideas.

  • Make a list of questions for each employer. And don't rule out networking with companies just because they are recruiting outside of your field!

  • We recommend connecting with our Marquee sponsor, Avient. They will be located near the registration and check-in table on the first floor, and right outside of the Glasscock Ballroom on the third floor.

  • Use your elevator pitch to introduce your skills and interests. Put your research to good use by asking thoughtful questions.

  • BRING EXTRA COPIES OF YOUR RESUME! If you're interested in the company, submit an online application before the fair and follow up during the event.
