How to Prepare for Career Showcase

Let’s Get Ready

Whether you attend Career Showcase in-person or virtually, career fairs require preparation so you can make a positive impression with employers and recruiters.

Here are few tips to help you get ready for Career Showcase.

  • Business professional attire is strongly encouraged.
  • Bring your Gator 1 or Gator 1 ID number for admission to the event
  • Bring several copies of your resumes for distribution
  • Have your resume reviewed prior to the event. The C3 provides Express Drop-In service (no appointment needed), weekdays for resume reviews, mock interviews, and more
  • Research the organizations before attending
  • Prepare questions to ask employers so you can see if an employer is a good fit with your values, abilities, and interests
  • Have a platform (notepad or phone app) to jot down notes of your conversations with recruiters to use during your follow-ups
    Come prepared knowing your availability for employment or internship, including start and end dates

Questions to Ask Yourself Before the Event:

  1. What kind of full-time experience are you looking for?
  2. Where would you be willing to relocate for work?
  3. Does the field you are looking to work in require any special certifications?
