How to Navigate a Career Fair
August 20, 2018
Recruiting season is here which means accounting firms are gearing up to attend college career fairs. This fall Smith & Howard will be visiting the University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, Georgia State University, Georgia College, Georgia Southern, North Georgia, and Kennesaw State University searching for the best and brightest students who are looking to begin a career in public accounting.
The main objective of the career fair is to find top notch candidates to fill internships and full-time opportunities. Firms might also be looking for students to participate in their summer leadership programs, such as Smith & Howard’s Leadership Institute program that is held each July. Firms talk to a number of students at the career fair. How do you make yourself stand out from the crowd?
A student has 1-3 minutes to make a meaningful impression on a recruiter at a career fair. To make the most of this and make sure they remember you, keep these things in mind:
Lastly, be yourself. You are trying to find the company that is the best fit for you. If you have to be someone you aren’t each day at work, you will not enjoy your working life.
We hope that our tips are helpful and we hope to see you at the Smith & Howard career fair booth this fall.
