A large number of career workshops and fairs take place this week on college campuses across the country. We're doing our best to promote them all, but make sure you find ones closest to you. This week's E-News issue promotes activities at two of our campus affiliates, as well as career planning tips. A special promotion for one of our employer partners rounds out the issue.
Reasons to attend a career fair
There are several reasons why students should attend and, more importantly, actively participate at career fairs:
Meet potential employers.
Gather information to help chose a major.
Be evaluated on more than just the resume.
Obtain information about careers to consider.
Learn more about jobs.
Make a good impression with a professional in a specific industry or representing a desirable company.
Increase the chances of the resume being considered.
Increase personal/professional network by collecting contact information from business/nonprofit leaders.
Introduces to the realities of the job search.
Escalates the possibility of meeting a fraternity/sorority alum, who recognizes the values and skills associated with Greek Life.
Prompts students to do something about their resumé writing and interviewing skills.
Provides a chance to polish networking skills.
Great opportunity for situational leadership.
Students and employers, registered in the Greek Ladders Career Network, will be able strengthen their relationships by meeting in person.
There’s a chance to be signed up for an interview on the spot!
In order to maximize the career fair experience, students must be active participants and not just “window shop” when walking past the many booths. It is essential to chat with the employer representatives and ask meaningful questions.
