Tips for Achieving Success at the NW Montana Job & Opportunity Fair
- Plan your day. Know ahead of time which employers you will want to speak with.
- Come equipped. Have cover letters and resumes ready for each employer. Bring a few extras.
- Be ready. Think through what Qs employers might ask you so you can overcome any jitters from on the spot interviews. Have Qs ready to ask each employer. Have a notepad and take notes.
- Dress for success. Even though you may not need to dress to the 9s for the job you want, your first impression with a prospective employer should help you stand out from the crowd.
- Leave friends and family at home. It’s always nice to have a wingman, but bringing a friend, child or family member for moral support is not an impressive tactic. This is your opportunity.
- Be confident. If you’re prepared, well dressed and ready to have a great conversation with a potential employer, your confidence will be through the roof! Nicely done.
