Before the fair
View exhibitors: Check the exhibitor list and Guide and make note of the exhibitors whom you wish to visit.
Research exhibitors: Find out what this employer does, their products, their graduate opportunities any recent announcements. Use websites to check the nature of their vacancies and their entry requirements. Think of sensible questions to ask.
Be mindful: Think about what you are going to wear. Formal/ smart causal is recommended
Starting conversations: Think about how you will introduce yourself confidently to exhibitors. Avoid generic questions like “what do you do?”
Practice "promoting yourself": Think about what sets you apart from the competition. What are your key strengths and skills? What are the key things you would like others to know about you? Provide examples.
CVs: Take CVs if you wish, but it is not vital. Some recruiters may not take them as they require on-line applications. If you do take a CV - be prepared, make sure there are no typos and that all your details are clear and accurate.
Take notes: Of exhibitors answers or their names in case you need to follow up later.
