The Career Services team also provided some quick tips that should help students ace their interviews:
- Do your research on the registered employers – Obtaining appropriate knowledge on the participating companies is a must-do. Employers give a better chance of hiring someone who thinks ahead and shows interest in the position and the organization they are applying to.
- Prepare your resume – Make sure that your resume has all the information necessary in order to gain employers’ attention. Create a customized resume for each position you’re interested in. You can also write a 30 to 60-second “elevator pitch,” providing enough information hiring managers might need all in one speech.
- Practice for your interviews – Build your corporate persona ahead of the interview. Aside from the elevator pitch, practice common courtesies and polish your verbal and physical communication skills. Making eye contact, preparing to answer and ask questions, and avoiding awkward movements during interviews are prime examples.
- Build your network – Job fairs are a great chance in building a network for your career, so make sure to bring your best foot forward to gain more connections.
- Follow up on your interview status – It’s not a bad thing to ask for follow-ups after the job fair. A good approach would be to send a thank you note to the employers, then reinstate your interest and qualifications for the job.
