Hope’s Career Fair is right around the corner, and now is the time for students to begin preparing to meet employers and finding internships that align with their interests. This week’s Career Camp featured guest speaker, Niki Ramírez, from the Kellog Company and discussed the best ways for students to come into Career Fair confident and prepared to talk to employers. Niki highlighted the importance of networking, resume preparation, elevator pitches, and the steps to take after attending the Career Fair.
A great way to prepare for conversations with employers is by researching their company to have a general overview of the company values as well as what positions they are looking to fill. Students should come dressed in business professional clothing and bring copies of a newly updated resume to hand out. Being confident and genuinely interested in a company is the best way to stand out and show employers you are excited to hear more about their company and potentially working with them.
