Resume Review Day

Resume Review Day gives students an opportunity to get their resume reviewed by employers before attending the Career Fair. It's a great way to get prepared and it also allows students to meet employers in advanced. Spots for Resume Review Day are limited so it's advisable to reserve a time-slot early.

Interview Day

Interview Day offers an opportunity for employers participating in the career fair to meet with their top candidates one-on-one for 30-minute interviews in the same location on the Friday of career fair week.

How to Prepare

  • Review the list of companies that will be there.
  • Research employers that interest you.
  • Prepare a brief (30-second) self-introduction (e.g., name, major, year, and one question).
  • Attend Resume Review Days.
  • Drop in to meet with a career coach to polish your resume, practice your self-introduction, get ideas for questions to ask, and prepare for interviews.
  • Attend company information sessions. Information sessions let you learn about a company's culture, hiring process, and current hiring priorities from someone who actually works there. Look for information sessions in Handshake within two weeks of the fair.
  • Plan to spend 1-2 hours at the fair.

What to Wear and Bring

  • Wear business professional or nice business casual attire. No student will be admitted wearing jeans, tennis shoes, or t-shirts.
  • Bring your Bearcat Card (student ID).
  • Bring a folder or portfolio with five to fifteen copies of your resume, a note pad and pen.
  • Coat and bag check is available, but you can skip the line and save time by leaving your coat and backpack at home or in a secure place while you’re at the fair. The Campus Recreation Center has a limited number of day-use lockers with built-in locks that members and non-members can use for free.
