Career Fair Day!April 19, 2015
Today was awesome!
I volunteered for a career fair at work. The same one I attended 3 years ago, and how I got into the company.
I must admit; my assumption going in was that there would be few qualified folks, and overall I would encounter people who would not be a good fit. I also went into the fair with an attitude of another Saturday at work - which is ridiculous, as I only work a Saturday every 6-8 weeks. I am thrilled to say, boy was I wrong!
Being able to speak to so many talented folks was awesome, as well as humbling. The experience and energy that they brought to the table was infectious and inspiring.
It was wonderful to show off our company, and even more so, our culture. The idea was to have these potential Team Members walk away feeling that this was their best career experience, regardless of whether they become a part of the team. So many of the people I spoke to were already experiencing this from their visit before getting to me. I can only hope that I helped enhance their visit, and inspire them to apply.
I did notice some tips, for those who were stronger candidates:
What has worked well for career fairs you have attended or hosted?
What things would you like to see and walk away with when you attend?
Have a great experience, share it below!
