5 Reasons to Attend the Fall Career Fair

The thought of attending the Fall Career Fair can seem intimidating - but it doesn't have to be!  Here are five reasons as to why it's beneficial for you to attend.

  1. It’s an opportunity to learn about a variety of industries
    Especially if you are an underclassman and are still discerning your career, going to the Fall Career Expo can be a great way to learn about potential industries you might want to pursue after graduation. You can talk to industry experts about their related fields and get a better sense of whether or not that would be something you would want to go into.
     
  2. It’s an opportunity to speak to people at your dream job/company
    Representatives from companies all across the country come to talk to ND students—use this opportunity to your advantage to get your foot in the door at your dream job! Or, you may think that you have a certain dream job in mind, but a great way to find out if it’s actually what you think you want is through speaking with people who are already there.
     
  3. You can build your network
    Networking is an amazing way to learn about potential industries/jobs you might want to pursue in the future. Building your network at the Fall Career Expo could lead to a potential professional relationship and job.
     
  4. You can learn about potential future jobs/opportunities you wouldn't have known about had you not gone
    You might think you really want to pursue a certain job/industry, but with a narrow scope. Open up your mindset by speaking with representatives at companies you might not have heard of; you may just find the perfect company for you!
     
  5. If you’re an underclassman, it is good practice for networking later for full time positions
    Never gone to a Career Fair? Starting early is a great opportunity to practice speaking to strangers in a stressful environment. Speaking with companies that don’t even have positions for younger years can be great practice for later networking opportunities.

Take the time to research the employers and organizations in attendance and make the most of the fair!
