  • 3. Show  off  your  whole  team   You already know that job seekers are excited to meet with recruiters to learn about the hiring process, but many of them would like to meet with your program staff and technical experts too. Round out your team with representatives from all sides of your organization to give candidates a broader perspective and understanding of your work. Tip  #1  
  • 4. Leave the interns behind The number one complaint we hear from career fair attendees is that some employers were only represented by interns who couldn’t answer their questions about the organization. We understand that development workers are busy, but try to bring only senior-level delegates, or plan to rotate staff out in shifts throughout the day. Tip  #2  
  • 5. Prepare  “behind  the  scenes”  insights  and  advice   A  major  frustra,on  for  prospec,ve  candidates  is  wai,ng  in  line  to  speak  with  an   employer  of  interest,  only  to  be  told  to  check  out  the  website.     Just  as  it  is  a  turn-­‐off  to  you  when  a  candidate  asks  basic  ques,ons  like,  “So  what  does   your  organiza,on  do?”,  it  is  a  turn-­‐off  to  them  if  you  aren’t  prepared  to  provide  insight   beyond  what  they  can  already  get  online.   Tip  #3  
  • 6. Make the most of the networking reception Yes, you will be tired, your feet will ache and your voice may be hoarse from talking all day. However, if you can push through to the networking reception you may find some of your most valuable conversations and connections made through this more informal part of the event. Plus, after a long day you deserve a drink! Tip  #4  
  • 7. Bonus  Tip   For the ladies: Flats or comfortable shoes will be your friends. If you aren't keen on wearing them throughout the day, at least throw a pair in your bag as backup (your feet will thank you later).
