Career Fair Preparation Guide: Get Ready for the Spring Fairs
Two big fairs are coming up for Baruch students, the Undergraduate Spring Career Day and the CUNY Big Apple Job and Internship Fair. If you haven’t started preparing yet, now is the time to get to it. Here are the resources that you should be tapped in to so that you can make the most of these upcoming opportunities.
- Get connected. Follow the hashtag #cunyjobfair for tweets on the Big Apple Fair and follow @BaruchSCDC for the Spring Career Day. Join the SCDC Facebook group.
- Get your materials reviewed. At the SCDC, you can have them reviewed by a counselor by making an appointment, by attending walk-in hours or Resume Rush. Do it early in case it requires it more work than you think.
- Attend prep workshops. See StarrSearch for the upcoming workshops to prepare for the Fair. Review the Career Fair video for student insider tips.
- Read through JobMaven posts. Search through the Career Fair category.
Do your homework and prepare for the fairs so that you can make the most of these useful opportunities. It takes a skilled job seeker, who uses his or her resources, to convert an opportunity into an actual job.
