I Went to the Career Fair – Now What?

Filed in Finding a Job by on September 20, 2013

Okay, so you went to Career Fair and talked to employers and companies. AWESOME! Now you’re sitting there wondering:

“What do I do now?”

“How long until they get back to me?”

“What if they don’t?”….

It’s key that you send a thank you note to each company/representative that took the time to talk to you. You don’t want them to forget about you or think that the time they spent talking to you went by unappreciated! If you did not get their business card at the Career Fair you can come into the CDC and check the Employer Card Scan database on the computers in the front lobby. If you’re unsure of how to write a thank you note, attend our Thank You Note Writing workshop on Monday 9/23!

Have an interview already? GREAT! Here are some links and handouts to help you prepare:

Keep up the search,
