Our favorite points of mention are:
- Don’t hold back
- Job Fairs are a revolving door. Think about the prospective candidates that have been practicing their speeches for days. Don’t be a robot. Make eye contact, smile, and talk about the company and why you would be a good fit. No hiring manager wants to speak with a broken record.
- Get Personal
- Not holding back also means delving deeper into the company and speaking about recent news and changes within the company. Research the jobs fair’s website to see which vendors will be attending.
- Eat, Sleep, and Be Merry
- Rest up and eat before the fair so you’re not low on energy. You never know who will be watching you drag your feet around from table to table. Be upbeat, smile, and shake everyone’s hands!
- Short and Sweet
- Make sure you follow up. Include the fair where you met and a brief recap of what you discussed.
Do you have any questions about attending your next job fair? Comment and we will answer.

You have been sitting by your phone awaiting the inevitable call defining your career future. Either you got the job or you didn’t. If/when you do not get the job offer, because it happens to all of us, you start to wonder what you did wrong in the process.
We have provided a few pointers to perfect while looking for a job, interviewing, and hopefully receiving offer after offer.
- Nobody Is Perfect – But Your Resume Should Be
- Customize your resume to the actual job description which you are applying. Take in to consideration the company’s culture and job qualifications. Job seekers get into the habit of sending the same resume to all employers. Make it personal – it makes you stand out.
- DO NOT assume that your LinkedIn profile will suffice as a resume.
- DO NOT lie. You will eventually get caught, either losing the job you lied to get or not getting a job you’re currently interviewing for.
- Be creative with your resume. Especially if the industry you want to work in calls for creative candidates.
- Attendance on the Web Is Non-Existent
- Don’t underestimate the power of being an active networking, social media butterfly. Make your social media profiles professional, eye-catching, and original.
- If you are active with your social media posts do not reveal your relationship woes, drunken nights on the town, or anything personal that you wouldn’t want your employer to know about.
- When you apply for a job and the hiring manager likes your resume the next possible may be to find your picture on Facebook and/or LinkedIn. Again, make it professional.
- Keep Your Cool
- We know how stressful it is to be unemployed, laid off, and searching for a job. This doesn’t mean you can act this way in an interview or when networking. Replace stress with confidence.
- Be confident but don’t be too arrogant. Use your strong and positive personality when speaking about your experience. When asked questions about past experience or why you were let go, don’t get defensive. Just smile with confidence and answer in your slowest, calmest, “I know who I am and what I want,” voice.
While these are only some reasons you may not have received a job offer, this area is not black and white and can be a ton of reasons why you were not chosen.
The company could:
- Hire internally
- Change the scope of the job
- Place the job on hold due to budget
- Lack of experience/Overqualified
- Talked too much/too little
