Career Expos Today & Thursday!

Graduating this year? Ready for a full - time job?

Attend the Career Expo today or Thursday at the Hotel at AU & Dixon Conference Center from 3 - 7 p.m.!

Engineering & Technical Majors

All Majors: Thursday, February 10

Having realistic expectations of Career Expo is important in succeeding in your career search. This is a list of common career fair expectations:
  • Employers expect you to be prepared (dress professionally, ask thoughtful questions, have a polished resume, etc.).
  • Employers expect to interact with students seeking employment as well as those simply researching careers and employers.
  • Most recruiters are not authorized to hire candidates on the day of the fair. With this in mind, your goal should be to land an interview—not a job offer.
  • Employers’ goals are to be exposed to as many job candidates as possible; therefore, you will have a relatively short amount of time to sell yourself and make a positive impact on the employer.
  • Portfolio/Briefcase (Women should either carry a briefcase or handbag, never both.)
  • Pen and Notebook
  • At least a dozen resumes
  • Copies of your unofficial transcript
  • Copies of list of references
  • Appropriate clothing including comfortable, professional shoes
  • Small breath mints—no gum!
  • A positive attitude

Attending Career Expo for the first time can be a little overwhelming. However, if you prepare, you will get as much out of the event as you put into it.

Good luck at the Expo! We look forward to seeing you there!
