Some tips for career fair from internet!

Try to answer the classic question, "Why do you want to work for us?” Check the tab "About Us" and career sections of employers' Web sites are typically good places to start.

Plan to take at least 25 resumes to a job fair, 40 or so if it's a huge event.

Prepare to be interviewed on the spot, learn to summary style in a few minutes or less.

Also prepare to fill out a job application on the spot.

Pick up a booth map if available, and route your path to the employers you've targeted.

If you're going to attend seminars, networking events and such, look for the schedules while you're at it.

Visit your targeted employers first with resume in hand, and spend some "quality time" with each.

Collect business cards or contact info as you go, and do follow up within 24-48 hours with a thank-you letter to each of the representatives with whom you spoke.
