Officials suggest the five following things to prepare for the fair:

  • Review the organizations’ profiles in advance (After logging in, click “Event Details” for this fair)
  • Develop a strategy – which companies do you most want to speak with?
  • Decide how to allocate your time. Determine what times your target employers will be holding chat rooms.
  • Prepare questions before joining a chat session, or if you prefer, you can review others’ questions in the public chat.
  • Write your elevator pitch, which you should strictly use in private interactions with employers (do not post these in the public chat room).
