Fall Career Days Series: After the fair

| 0 Comments

Congratulations, you have made it through Fall Career Days 2013!  Hopefully you have met with some interesting employers, and have exciting new opportunities to look forward to. After the fair is just as important as the preparation.

Make sure to do the following:

  • Send follow up thank you notes to potential employers, especially those you interviewed with;
  • If an employer requested additional information, be sure to send it off right away;
  • If you were instructed to apply online, do not hesitate, the sooner the better.
Many Liberal Arts students have found Fall Career Days to be a successful experience, securing not only internships but also full time positions. Listen to Juliana Viau's unexpected but very rewarding story! Good luck with your Career Fair leads!

Fall Career Days Series: At the fair

| 0 Comments
By this stage, you should be well on your way to having a successful Fall Career Days experience. Make sure: your resume is updated, you have appropriate clothing, you have checked out and mapped out what employers you would like to visit, and your thirty second introduction is perfect! Liberal Arts majors should also be familiar with the new bag policy for Fall Career Days.

Now comes the best part: attending the fair!


  • You should have with you several copies of your resume (enough to cover the employers you plan to visit, plus a couple spares in case a company strikes you by surprise).
  • Be flexible: If one of your employers has a long line, move on to the next and circle back at the end.
  • Be ready to talk with the representatives and have questions prepared!
If you are worried about how to approach employers at the fair, make sure to check out the video below.  LER major Dave Cinque has some great advice about speaking with recruiters at the fair. Dave's networking experience landed him a summer internship with Target, so make sure to check out the video below!



A quick note about interviews:

If you have a successful interaction with an employer at the fair or if your application is selected by the company's human resources department during the review process, you may be asked to schedule an interview.  Some  employers may even ask you to interview the next day.  If that is the case, make sure you get an appointment card indicating your interview date, time, and place.

In preparation for your interview, watch these quick videos on the Do's and Don'ts of Interviewing!

Originally uploaded by pennstatelive
With so many employers attending Fall Career Days, finding which ones interest you can be a daunting task. We recommend knowing in advance who you want to see and where you will need to stop!

Here are a few steps to help you search for employers attending Fall Career Days:

Step 1: The Homepage
Step 2: Employers Attending
  • You will be prompted by a screen with various resources on how to prepare, strategies for success, and general F.A.Q's. Under "The Basics" tab, select Employers Attending.
Step 3: Search Engine
Step 4: Filter
  • Depending on what you are looking for at the Fair, you can filter the results of your search. For Liberal Arts majors, we recommend selecting Tuesday: Non-Technical Full-Time Career Day and/or Wednesday: Internship and Co-op Career Day.
  • Once you have selected a day, you can choose from various categories including: major, degree type, and recruiting areas. Choose what applies to you, but remember to try several different searches to discover all employers that might interest you.
Step 5: Map It Out
  • Once you have found an employer that interests you, make sure to write down the Booth/Table number found on the far left column of your search results, marked Days Attending.
  • Next, download and print a map of the table locations within the BJC. You can mark where each employer is, and then create a plan of attack, making the most of your time at the Bryce Jordan Center!
Success Stories:
  1. Knowing the company Vanguard would be in attendance at the Fall Career Days, Jessica Tucker (Communication Arts & Sciences and Sociology double major) prepared to meet with representatives and successfully secured an internship. Read about her experience here!
  2. Watch the video below to hear about Psychology and Labor Studies and Employment Relations major Todd Kahn's experience preparing for and attending last year's Fall Career Days:



Remember, one of the best tips we can offer is to be prepared. Knowing ahead of time which employers interest you will give you the opportunity to research the company and present yourself as a worthy candidate.

As you begin researching employers who will be attending the fair, you might be interested in attending the upcoming pre-fair workshop:
