Career Showcase for Students
The 2024 Eller Career Showcase event is open for registration. Registration is not needed to attend, but will tell us how many to expect.
In the meantime, the best way to prepare is to:
- Update your resume, and be sure to upload it to Handshake and make it public.
- Complete your Handshake profile. Employers have the ability to set certain qualifications for one-on-one sessions. If your profile is not complete, you may not see all sessions available to you.
- IMPORTANT: To maximize opportunities, ensure your GPA is visible (uncheck "hide from employers" in your profile) and work authorization status is updated (in settings and privacy).
- Research employers attending the fair and opportunities they have available.
- Create questions specific to companies and positions of interest and have them ready to go for talking with employer reps in the fair.
- Create an elevator pitch about yourself for when you introduce yourself to company reps in the fair.
- Meet with a Career Coach or PDA to practice your pitch, work on tailored questions and/or update your resume. Appointments available through eSMS.
- Dress appropriately. First impressions are important. We recommend business-casual or smart-casual.
- Be enthusiastic and inquisitive.
- Ask tailored questions.
- Reference your resume and point out your experience.
- Ask the representative for their contact information for your follow up after the fair.
- Be courteous! In addition to representing yourself, you also represent your college and the University. All of the organizations at the fair are there because of their interest in hiring Eller students. Some representatives are UA alumni. Demonstrate sensitivity to other students in Group Sessions by keeping your questions brief, sharing space, and offering to continue your conversation at a later time. Enjoy the virtual fair and your interaction with the employers. Let your positive attitude shine!
After a Career Fair:
- Send a thank you email to the company rep you met with, and include two-three takeaways from your interaction about the position or company.
- Connect with employer reps on LinkedIn.
- Apply and Notify: If interested, apply for the position you discussed and notify the company rep you met with in the fair that you've done so.
