In early Spring, Middlesex, Monmouth and Ocean County employers begin to gear up for the season and are looking to hire.
Press Communications wants to make that career search much easier! Career Today NJ will do exactly that. It is the recruitment/career fair you have been waiting for!
What to expect at Career Today NJ
All candidates should dress professionally and bring plenty of resumes to distribute to employers.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to make an "all out" effort to meet with every employer that has the potential to hire you.
Preparation is the key to making a successful presentation at any job or career fair.
Arrive early and map out your strategy. Who will you talk with first? Lines will be longer for certain employers. Plan accordingly.
Keep an open mind. Don't miss out on opportunities. Tour the event, speak with all the participating organizations, and be sure to learn more about them and what they have to offer.
Introduce yourself to company representatives in a positive and confident manner. Offer a firm handshake and communicate your professional experience/strengths.
Present your résumé and be ready to discuss your background, qualifications and career goals. Share your educational background (Degree, Major, Year of Graduation).
Tell the recruiter about your job interests. Discuss a particular career or job with that organization and learn more about them and their available opportunities. Discuss possible internship or summer job opportunities if applicable.
Think of questions for the employer regarding your area(s) of interest. What are common career paths within your organization? What is the training program for new hires? What do you look for in a candidate? What advice do you have for applicants? Ask how you can go about applying for a position with them.
Follow up. Be sure to obtain each representative's contact information (Name, Title, address, Email/Phone number). Collect literature and business cards whenever possible and ask the representatives when you can expect to hear back from them. Follow up with the representative after the event and THANK them for their time. This will help you stand out.
Be sure to take notes after each table. Write down your thoughts about the company, the recruiter, your chances, follow-up strategies, to-do list, etc. Keep this information organized!
