You will have the opportunity to meet top employers and to interview for several positions during the course of the day, meeting the people who actually make the hiring decisions. You will save a lot of time since there will be no need to craft a customized personal statement for each company you visit: You’ll be able to tell them why you wish to work for them, and you’ll have the chance to sell yourself.
Our employers send their managers to carry out onsite interviews. Don’t wait for someone to call you for an interview. Sign up for our next career fair and give off a first impression that makes a lasting career.
