Fair Update Feb. 12

Posted on February 12th, 2016 by

Fair Goers:

  1. Please know that it is not my intention to create anxiety with all these messages about fair. I just don’t know of another way to get over 200 people the info!
  2. Just so you know…..my schedule is very tight and I am not able to take individual appointments before the fair. Please attend the info sessions I have scheduled next Monday at 3:00, 3:30, 4:00 and on Tuesday at 10:00, 10:30 all in Career Development. (I have had very low turn out for these so far.)
  3. Please see the attachments to this for info on the fair. THESE WILL REALLY HELP YOU!
  4. Please download the phone app for the fair – free – search for Minnesota Private Colleges Job and Internship Fair – tons of good info including a map with the location of all employers.
  5. I understand the van that the Diversity Center is offering to the fair has a waiting list. THERE IS NOT A BUS GOING FROM CAMPUS!
  6. On Wednesday the employer booth area opens at 9 a.m. With this in mind, plan to be parking your car by 8 a.m.  Remember this is downtown Minneapolis on a work day in the winter with thousands descending on the Convention Center.  I DO ENCOURAGE YOU TO CONSIDER STAYING IN THE TWIN CITIES THE NIGHT BEFORE.
  7. Do attend the fair expecting that you will get an interview. That means prepare to be interviewed.
  8. Do have a list of 5 – 10 employers who you have researched and plan to talk to – if you just wander around without a plan you are likely to be frustrated. You may also talk to others not on your list, but have some ready.
  9. This weekend is your chance to get ready for Wednesday! Get your clothes together – including shoes.  Get your employer list together.  Review the basics of interviewing.  Get copies of your resume printed on resume paper.
  10. Ok…we are almost there! Just 5 days till Fair!
