Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) Before the Fair 1. How can I prepare for the job fair? Prepare for the job fair by attending the workshops and events scheduled during Career Month. During the preceding month Career Services offers workshops and events every day to help you prepare for the job fair. The workshop “How to be Successful at a Job Fair” is highly recommended and is offered three times before the fair itself. Check the Career Services website at http://careers.uta.edu for a current list of events associated with Career Month. Remember that career services staff is available throughout the semester to help with resume critiques, mock interviews, dress for success tips, and help with networking. You can either call us at (817) 272-2932 or email us at [email protected] to schedule an appointment. 2. Do I need to bring my resume to the job fair? YES!!! Bring many copies! 3. Do I need to dress up? How badly do you want a job? First impressions are everything! If you come to the fair dressed inappropriately you’ll be “that” student – the one the recruiters talk about at the water cooler the next day. 4. How can I get more exposure to company representatives? Attending events during Career Month is an excellent way to increase your exposure to company representatives. We recruit employers to assist us with all of these workshops and events. Plan to attend Career Month events, learn new skills, and network with employers. Another way to gain additional exposure with recruiters is to attend the employer’s information session, if they’re having one. This is an excellent opportunity for you to demonstrate your enthusiasm for the company, and show the recruiter you’re serious about employment with their firm.

5. I thought the job fair was for only graduating seniors and alumni? Companies come to the fair offering both full-time and part-time positions, as well as internships, and therefore are recruiting students at various class levels including sophomores and juniors. 6. I graduated 10 years ago. Can I attend the fair?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
