How to Get to the Front of the Career Fair Line Quickly

 

Savvy Intrapreneurs are always training their eyes to spot opportunity. Embrace the current challenges in a way that positions you to adapt, improvise and overcome. In addition to job fairs, the suggestions below can be applied all conferences and events in your local area.

Can't afford to attend a $1,500 conference? Then volunteer.

I'll cut right to the chase.

  1. Identify career fairs in your area.
  2. Contact the sponsoring companies to see if they need volunteers to help out.
  3. Get to the career fair an hour earlier than requested to meet other company representatives.
  4. When you take a break, visit other company representatives you missed earlier.
Keep in mind, you're interviewing with every company through your volunteer actions and dress. The company "volunteer" badge gives you front line access. Plan on staying all day or as long as the company requires. Remember you're there to work and help out. Networking is a sideline activity, but take advantage of every free moment to do so.
