Before the Expo

  • Attend upcoming Professional U career readiness workshops.
  • Select what you will wear. If you are in need of professional attire, visit the Career Closet, Fenstemaker Alumni House.
  • More tips to prepare for the expo.

During the Expo

You can expect to speak with several recruiters and campus representatives throughout the day. For a productive and beneficial experience:

  • Arrive dressed professionally
  • Bring a portfolio to make notes and gather information
  • Sign in and pick up your name tag
  • Review the expo table map to locate organizations of interest to you
  • Greet recruiters with confidence, a smile, and a handshake. Remember to thank them at the end of your conversation

After the Expo

Career networking doesn’t stop when the expo ends. Keep the conversation going by following up with representatives you’ve met and by researching organizations and application deadlines:

  • Compose an email and handwritten “thank you” message for each representative you’ve met and send within 24 hours
  • Investigate if any organizations of interest to you will be returning to campus to recruit and request an interview
  • Follow up by sending resumes or completing online applications
