How to prepare for the fair
1. Attend the Career Fair Prep Workshop. To help you gain a competitive edge, the U of T Career Centre is hosting a unique Career Fair Prep Workshop. It’s divided into two parts: 1) How to prepare for the fair; and 2) What to do at the fair and how to follow up. You can register to attend both parts or just one.
- April 18 | Part 1: How to prepare for the fair | SF1105 | 5 - 6 pm
- April 18 | Part 2: What to do at the fair and how to follow up | SF1105 | 6 - 7 pm
- April 24 | Part 1: How to prepare for the fair | SF1105 | 5 - 6 pm
- April 24 | Part 2: What to do at the fair and how to follow up | SF1105 | 6 - 7 pm
This workshop is free to attend, and refreshments will be served. You can register for the workshop when you register for the fair.
2. Research the companies. This webpage will be updated regularly with participating companies, so check back often! Familiarize yourself with the companies and the kinds of positions they’re seeking to fill (check the list of employers above for links to current opportunities). While some companies may be seeking to hire someone with a particular engineering background, remember that your skills are transferable and you may also qualify. Talk to companies to learn more about available roles and the skills and knowledge they are looking for.
3. Practice your pitch. Whether you’re looking to land a job interview with a specific company or network with several employers to explore your options, you need to present yourself professionally, confidently and succinctly. Be prepared to speak with employers about your strengths, areas of expertise and previous experience. You’ll leave a positive and lasting impression if you can articulate that you understand the employers’ needs, and that your expertise can help to fulfill those needs.
4. Bring a resume and business cards (if possible). Not all companies at the fair are looking to collect resumes, but it never hurts to be prepared with your resume in case you make a valuable connection. If you have business cards, bring those as well.
5. Map your plan of action. When you arrive at the career fair, you’ll receive a booklet with a brief description of each employer and where they’re located on the floor. Make the most of your time by visiting the companies that align best with your interests first.
6. Dress for success. Make a good first impression by dressing professionally. Aim for “business casual,” which means no jeans, trackpants, t-shirts or sneakers. Dress as you would for a job interview.
7. Give yourself enough time. The fair runs from 10am to 4pm on May 2. It’s hard to anticipate how much time you’ll need, but don’t risk cutting important conversations short if you can avoid it.
