5 Extra Tips After the Fair!

Written by Career Events Intern, Courtney Russell

Fisher Fall Career Fair 2015

  1. Discover the company you love won’t hire a freshman or sophomore for their summer internship positions? Find an alumni contact from LinkedIn or the Office of Career Management to help you land a shadowing.
  2. Even if it won’t help you at this career fair, you still have the Fisher Spring Internship & Job Fair 2016, so make sure you are involved outside your school work. Join a Fisher organization or take a leadership role in which you are already a member.
  3. Make a great connection with a recruiter? Put that business card you received to use and send an email, write a letter, or make a phone call to follow up on your conversation. Remember to thank them for simply coming to the fair and speaking with you!
  4. Keep in touch with past professors, your boss from a past summer job or internship, and others that may be able to help you in the future as a reference on an application.
  5. Make sure your voicemail box on your cell phone is not full. The message should be quick, clear and professional. Hopefully you will get a call to come in for an interview!
