Do your research
Prior to the Expo, you are encouraged to research the employers attending. At the Expo you will have a limited amount of time with each employer so it’s extremely important to carry out your research beforehand. Find out where the employer booths are located at the Expo using the floor plan.
Update your resume
We suggest you bring copies of your resume to the Expo. After discussion with employers, you could hand them your resume, permitting they are interested. Be sure to attend one of our resume writing workshops first!
What are employers looking for?
Graduate employers are looking for “well rounded” students who are able to “fit” into their working environment and culture. Meeting employers at an Expo is a great way to showcase your ability to effectively communicate, discuss key projects, begin a conversation and ask a number of interesting questions.
Your personal "pitch"
Be sure you introduce yourself to employers and tell them briefly about your current degree, areas of interest, current courses and relevant extra-curricular activities. Upon meeting an employer, it’s always good to shake hands and show eye contact. Practise a one-minute personal pitch for employers - that introduces you, summarises what you're looking for and outlines what you can offer them.
Get some sleep the night before!
You'll be needing all the energy you can muster, if you're to take advantage of all of the opportunities.
