Job Fair getting hired tips from Workforce Solutions of North Central Texas

WorkForce

Workforce Solutions for North Central Texas (WSNCT) in partnership with the Texas Workforce Commission and Texas Veterans Commission presents the 6th Annual Statewide Hiring Red, White & You! Job Fair from 1 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 9 at the Allen Event Center, 2000 East Stacy Road in Allen TX off U.S. 75.

  1. Know which employers are attending. Employer list will be provided on www.dfwjobs.com/RWY2017 at least 72 hours before the event. Do your research and make a priority list of which employers you want to meet.  Have a strategy for maximizing time at the event. Focus on recruiters from the companies that most interest you.
  2. Have plenty of copies of your resume ready. You might need to prepare more than one version. Bring several copies of your resume, even if you submitted your resume in advance online. Make it easy for the employer to glance at your resume while speaking to you. Building a relationship with the recruiter can be valuable. If you’re looking for more than one type of position, each being significantly different (like marketing or human resources), be prepared with tailored versions of your resume to support the different objectives.
  3. Be prepared that some employers will not accept printed resumes and will ask you to apply online. This is to comply with federal regulations about the way employers maintain and manage applicant data efficiently.
  4. Prepare a 30-second introduction or elevator pitch to use with employers. You don’t want to sound like a telephone solicitor reading a script; you do want to sound like you have thought about how to present yourself positively. Be prepared to talk about your work experience, skills and abilities.
  5. Prepare questions in advance: Employers want employees who are proactive, thoughtful, and good listener. Make yourself stand out with smart questions.
  6. Dress for success. Dress professionally – conservative is always a good choice.

Click HERE for Training Video Resources.

AT THE JOB FAIR:

  1. Watch your manners and mannerisms. Eliminate bad habits such as fidgeting, chewing gum, or acting distracted.
  2. Handshakes are critical. Have a firm handshake and make good eye contact.
  3. Be clear and engaging when you speak. Be friendly and conversational, have a positive attitude. Stay on topic. Job fairs are sometimes noisy, so speak clearly and confidently.
  4. Don’t be misled into thinking of the fair as a social event. Don’t fall into the mistake of interacting on a social level and forgetting that you are being judged on your potential to function in the work environment.
  5. Carry a simple portfolio to keep your resumes organized and ready. Be ready to hand employers the appropriate resume. Be prepared for employers to give you literature and give-away items (pens, cups, t-shirts, etc.). This is typical at fairs and sometimes they give you a bag to carry the give-aways. Bottom line, you want to look like an organized person because you will be an asset to the company.
  6. Have an open mind. You may have 12 employers on your target list to speak with. If you have extra time or are waiting to speak with an employer, take advantage of the opportunity to network with other employers or job seekers. You will be practicing initiating conversation in a less formal business environment — and this is an essential skill in any work environment
  7. This is your opportunity to be evaluated on more than just your resume. In many aspects of the job search, your resume and cover letter are all the employer sees to determine whether to interview you. At a fair, you have an opportunity to stand out in person and build rapport with recruiters.
  8. Be sure and follow up with each recruiter. Call and leave a message on their voice mail, Send a thank you letter tot he recruiter and restate key points of your conversation.
