Special Skills & Requirements Tips for being successful at NYC job fairs… 1. Interview with everyone you can, even if they work for some tiny paper you never heard of in a city with a name ending in -ville that you think is at the edge of the Earth. Pass up a table with an unoccupied recruiter, and you could be passing up a good mentor, the piece of advice you need to get started or a great first job. 2. Bring handy wipes can keep your hands clean. 3. Prepare for your interviews. Even if it means cruising by the recruiter's/companies table and scamming a piece of their literature. Be sure to read the literature before you approach the company. Try not to approach any company without having some plan of what you are going to say at the NYC job fair. 4. Sell yourself in the interviews. In addition to fielding questions, be prepared to make a couple of pitches for yourself. What should they hire you? Give them reasons that can be supported by examples. Put it across. 5. Have a good question for every interview. It can be the same question all day long, just make sure you ask a question. It could be something specific about their company or the position. Try to get the recruiter to talk. 6. Stay fresh. Job fairs in NYC can be grueling with one interview after another. They can be especially grueling on people who stayed out late the night before. Even for the rested, the room can get stale and the interviews monotonous. If you start to flag, get some caffeine, even a drink of water or take a walk around the block to revive your spirits and go back to the NYC job fair. 7. Leave every recruiter at the job fair in NYC with something to remember you. An impression, a personalized letter, a strong résumé and a promise to follow up all help you stick in their mind. 8. Take something away from every interview. Ask questions that give you information or advice that each recruiter has about the position and what they are looking for in a candidate. Dig until you find it. Be active, positive and smile. 9. Write thank-you notes for follow up. Most people at the job fair will not do this. Cite something specific from your interview: I'm taking your advice about my____." This will help the recruiter remember you -- and show that you can take constructive criticism. 10. Definitely follow up. After the job fairs in NYC, look at the companies website, read the about us, apply for an opening or find out more about it. Make a follow up phone call. Send a follow up resume via email with a short note reminding them you met at the job fair. People who are successful at using the job fairs in NYC do half their work after it's over. Treat the job fair interview as a first contact, not the last. 10 DO-NOT's at the Career Fair NYC 1. Clicking your teeth with your tongue stud will set you back with some recruiters. 2. If you know you are going to run out of copies of your résumé, save one copy and go to the hotel business center a make some extra companies. Do not waste your time by approaching the recruiters without a resume in hand, you will look unprepared and have a slim chance of finding a position. 3. Do not pass your résumé under the partition to the recruiter in the next stall. 4. Do not ask questions like: How many vacation days do I get? How many sick days do I get? 5. Do not let mild adversity get in your way. If you are in your room, your hair dryer sets your clips on fire and you fall off the balcony and into the hotel pool to escape the flames, go to the job fair, anyway. Editors like tenacity. 6. Yawning, belching and wax removal are better left for between-interview times. 7. If your clips are full of typos, do not present them by pointing out the typos for the editor and explaining whose fault they are. Just smile and hope that the editor doesn't read clips. 8. Have an opening statement, don’t walk up to a recruiter and ask questions you know the answer to. For example, don’t ask are you hiring? 9. Do not leave gum, banana peels, coffee cups ect. on the recruiter's table. It is untidy. 10. Wear baseball type hats, have music playing on your ipod, don't have any bring any type of drink to the recruiters table.
