Career Fair Tips for College Students

Associate Faculty member and Senior Recruiter for the Walt Disney Company Roberto Mucciacciaro has some tips for making the most of the Center for Career and Professional Development’s Career Fair on April 4, 2023 from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. in the Drubner Center

It is that time of the year again! They can be daunting, exhausting, and extremely overwhelming, but as a college student, how can you make the most out of your school’s career fair? I’ve laid out a few tips for you from a recruiter’s point of view!

We have all gone through it. As a college student, you come across a flyer about an upcoming career fair, and you know the last four years of college have flown by, so now it’s time to prepare for life after college.

But how do you ensure you make the most of that career fair and stand out amongst the dozens and even hundreds of other students in attendance as well? Hopefully, the tips I provide below will help you prepare for your next career fair and ease the nerves as you attend it.

Research what jobs are available at the companies you are interested in:

Recruiters hate the vast “I am interested in everything” response when we interact with potential prospects. Using this as an example since I primarily recruit for production-based roles, but I often hear, “I have a passion for editing, filming, writing, producing, directing, and audio engineering; what opportunities do you have for me?” This is a loaded question that no one can truly answer but yourself! Narrow your focus, and ensure that you pursue roles aligning with your purpose. As a recruiter, I may have ten roles that are in the production field, but that doesn’t mean these ten align with your career goals.

This is where research comes into play when attending a career fair. In researching the companies, take note of any openings that you are interested in and qualified for. The latter half of that statement is key! You will have a better chance of getting an interview and furthering the relationship with the recruiters/managers at the booth if you are qualified for the role you are interested in.

Update your resume and LinkedIn account:

Prior to attending the career fair, work with your career services team to have your resume and LinkedIn account updated. First impressions are critical, and being able to highlight your experience in a visual form to the booth personnel will help drive the conversations. It’ll allow them to understand what you have done and how that relates to positions they may be hiring for. Recruiters and hiring managers will often connect with attendees on LinkedIn during a conference. Be prepared to share your username and resume with the team, so you can keep the relationship going once the career fair is over!

We live in a world where the value of leadership is often placed on the shoulders of men. But there is an oft-overlooked population of women who exemplify what it truly means to be a leader: Strong, Confident, and Resilient role models of courage and compassion. These remarkable women have chosen to use their unique skills, talents, and passions to make a positive difference in society. They are the women leaders who are paving the way for all of us to follow.

What It Means to Me to Be a Woman Leader

To be a woman leader means having the courage and strength to stand up for what is right and lead with integrity. It is having the confidence to make decisions that will benefit the greater good and having the humility to recognize that there is always room to learn and grow. -Senator Clawson

Leadership is not about authority to me; it is about doing what is fair and providing an inclusive environment for my team. At the end of the day, the whole team’s outcome is what it is all about for me. – Vice Chair Moreno

Being a woman leader takes a lot of patience and encouragement. Women are trying to change the world around us! We, as women, need to stay together and lift each other up in positive ways. – Senator Naik

I feel the most fulfilled when I know I am striving to make a difference. My light only shines when put together with others, and I’m proud to share mine with other strong Women leaders. – Senator Raley
