Ship materials ahead of time and leave return-shipping labels (UPS and/or USPS). We’ll take care of the rest. That way, you don’t have to lug everything onto the shuttle and back. It’ll be on your table waiting for you when you arrive. We also ship it back to you after the fair wraps.
It’s chilly in the Whittemore Center. Wear socks and comfortable shoes. You can also bring carpet runners to stand on behind your table if you’d like.
Stay the whole fair (1:00-5:00pm). Students’ schedules have them in and out of classes all day long. Some students may have class until 3:15pm before they can get to the fair.
Take resumes & connect on LinkedIn. Even if your company will require an online application, take a physical copy if you can, and connect with them on LinkedIn for future opportunities you may be trying to fill. Students are using LinkedIn more than ever.
Hold an open house on-site at your location (if local) sometime AFTER the Career Fair; hand out invites during the fair to students you’d like to attend (or encourage them to bring a classmate).
There is no electricity on the floor of the Whittemore Center. If you run videos on laptops, please bring an additional battery, as you will not be able to plug in.
