Career Expo 2019
Who should attend the career fair?
Why attend the career fair?
Watch these short videos to learn how to make the most of a career fair.
HOW TO PREPARE:
You should dress professionally (a suit is best, but shirt/tie and dress pants for men; blouse/dress slacks for women is acceptable - avoid jeans, t-shirts, caps, athletic shoes, hiking boots, etc.), bring multiple copies of your resume and your ALL CARD, and be prepared to speak with employers. If you have a tight budget, see Professional Clothing Resources. Remember, your goal is to make a positive first impression on the employer and dressing up shows them that you made an effort to impress!
Be sure to check out our Spring Events 2019 (workshops covering resumes, job searching, etc.) and visit Career Services (UC 225) to have your resume reviewed. Walk-in hours (no appointment necessary) are Mon., 3:30-5:30 p.m.; Wed., 9-11 a.m.; and Th., 2:30-4 p.m., or you may call 859-572-5680 for an appointment. If you cannot attend a resume workshop, see our Resume Preparation Guide.
You should research participating organizations prior to the Expo on HireNKU, the organizations' websites, and other online and print resources. See Make the Most of Career Fair handout. Don't forget to download the Career Fair Plus app (see links above).
Career Expo Prep Extended Walk-in Hours in Career Services:
These are in addition to our regular hours and are designed for last-minute resume review and to answer quick questions. You can expect 10-15 minutes with our staff. Come to UC 225.
IMPORTANT: Upload your resume to HireNKU by Tues., Feb. 26 so it can be accessed by employers. Many of the employers in HireNKU have the capability to search for your resume based on your Profile information such as your major, graduation date, etc. Be sure to have your resume reviewed in Career Services before uploading. To upload your resume, click "My Documents" under the "My Account" tab on the HireNKU header.
Please bring your ALL CARD to Career Expo so that a nametag can be quickly printed for you that day. To ensure your nametag has your name, major, and graduation date listed correctly, you MUST update your profile on HireNKU (also under "My Account").
Call Career Services at 859-572-5680 if you have questions. Please also call us if you require an accommodation based on a disability.
