It is a new year, and what better way to start the year than to get hired in a good company where you’ll grow personally and professionally. If you are having a hard time looking for jobs you can attend job fairs so you can have a lot of companies you can apply at in one day. There are a lot of upcoming job fairs this coming months so you have to look and feel your best before attending these events.
In coming into these job fairs, make sure that you bring your updated resume with your active number, and be ready to bring a lot. There are a lot of participating companies in job fairs, and you never know how many companies are going to catch your eye. If you bring only one resume, you are going to waste the opportunity to apply in different companies in a day. Bring at least 5 copies of your resume just to be sure.
Also, dress as you would during a job interview. A lot of companies also conduct the interview on the spot, especially if they see that your resume is good enough to be considered. However, they might be turned off with you when you show up wearing jeans or shorts. Appearance is very important when you’re applying, but it doesn’t just mean the way you dress, but how you carry yourself overall. Also, don’t pass your resume to just any company because you might get called that same day and if you don’t know anything about the company, you are not only embarrassing yourself in front of them but in front of other companies and applicants as well.
Lastly, when you get invited to sit down for an interview, be calm and confident. These two qualities are the first things the interview is going to notice about you. If the interviewer sees that you are prepared and answers the questions properly, then you have a big chance of getting hired on the spot. However, if you seem like someone just forced you to attend the job fair and you’re not prepared, it’s going to show as well.
The most important thing to remember when you’re attending job fairs is to think that you’re already going in several different interviews. Set your mind to it and be ready for such opportunities. Also, think positive. Being optimistic emanates from within, and if you believe that you can get the job on the spot because you’ve prepared for it, there’s a big chance that you actually will.
