Making the Most of a Job Fair – Part 3

Following Up After You Leave

Now that the job fair is over, you have one more important step. You must now follow up with all the contacts you made. Remember the business cards you received from each employer? It’s time to put them to good use. Write a thank-you note or send a thank-you card and express your appreciation to each person you met with. Include your contact information in case they want to meet with you. Most job seekers skip this important step. So, set yourself apart, and put in the extra effort by sending an appreciation card. This will help keep you top of mind when it comes time for the employers to start scheduling interviews.

Attending a job fair is beneficial to your job search in many ways. If you properly prepare yourself and make the most out of it, you may just get the results you’re looking for – a job interview!
