A large part of your success at a career fair will result from making the most out of the time you have face-to face with a recruiter. It is crucial that you network, keep an open mind, promote yourself and maintain a positive attitude through out the event. Career fairs allow you to meet with several employers at once- take full advantage by following the tips below:
- Networking: These events are all about making connections with companies and even the people in line with you. Each connection is an opportunity. If a company isn’t hiring for a position that fits your skills, don’t hesitate to ask for other contact information for different roles, be curious!
- Open minded: Just because you’ve never done something, doesn’t mean you can’t do it or wouldn’t like doing it; think outside the box – the possibilities are endless!
- Promote yourself: Be confident in all the great qualities that you can bring to a company, discuss your skills and experience in a confident manner.
- Positive attitude: Don’t assume there is nothing here for you and walk around the room without talking to recruiters. You’ve prepared a great resume, dressed for success, and made it to the event – keep the positive momentum going with conversations.
- Engage in conversation: While you should be aware and courteous of the time sensitive aspect of a career fair when talking to a recruiter, don’t shy away from answering questions fully. This is your time to showcase yourself; you are a potential hire.
According to figures released by the state of California, Nevada County’s unemployment rate receded slightly over the past year from 11.6 percent to an even 11 percent. Despite the underwhelming magnitude of the decrease, given the prolonged period of high unemployment the state continues to experience, any progress at all remains good news.
At the same time, the meager reduction was tempered by news of a further reduction in available positions in the county, according to the same report. The California Employment Development Department reported that Nevada County had 27,430 positions, reflecting 180 jobs lost in the past year. Much of that reduction comes from the government sector, as federal, state, and local governments all shed jobs.
On the bright side, Nevada County’s 11 percent jobless rate places it slightly below the rate for California as a whole, which stands at 11.4 percent, down from 11.9 percent a year ago. This reflects an overall better employment climate in the area as compared to the rest of the state, but remains high compared to the national average, which stands at 8.7 percent, down from 9.3 percent one year ago.
Given the unfavorable employment climate, it becomes imperative that anyone out of work and looking for a job take advantage of every opportunity to connect with employers directly. With so many applicants at every position, distinguishing oneself to prospective employers is the most important factor in getting hired, and the best way to do so is with a face-to-face meeting.
Making a connection in person could be the difference between getting hired and getting passed over again.
