  19. 24. <ul><li>If you have no idea what you want, or what your objective is, it will be very difficult for a prospective employer to tell you. </li></ul><ul><li>The more focused and better prepared you are, the quicker you and the employer can have a meaningful discussion. </li></ul>
  20. 25. <ul><li>Questions: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What companies do I want to work for? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Do I know what employers in this industry are really looking for? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How much do I know about the kind of work I want to do? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How does my experience align with identified opportunities? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Research companies that will be in attendan ce: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Determine a company’s position within their industry </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What types of jobs may be available? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Internships and regular employment offerings? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Review current job postings to gain insight into “ideal candidates” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Look for current news about the company, i.e. M&A activity, business expansion, new products, etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>At the Career Fair: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Pay attention to banners and other marketing materials </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pick up literature </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Listen to employer conversations…questions asked, information provided, etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Talk to your peers </li></ul></ul>
  21. 26. <ul><li>Most important rule: Know your target audience! </li></ul><ul><li>In order to meet a buyer's (EMPLOYER) need for a product or service you must understand what they consider to be important. </li></ul><ul><li>List what positive end results the customer (EMPLOYER) will get from using the product/service (YOU). </li></ul><ul><li>Develop a list of selling points. From the customer's (EMPLOYER) point-of-view, answer the questions, &quot;What's in it for me,&quot; &quot;So what,&quot; and &quot;Why should I buy from you?&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>Turn all the features of the product/service into benefits. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep your target audience in mind during the entire creation process, provide a benefits-oriented objective and list your past successes! </li></ul>
  22. 27. <ul><li>Career fairs are interviews and you should treat them as such. </li></ul><ul><li>We all make quick judgments about people based on the way they dress, present themselves, their eye contact and body language. </li></ul><ul><li>First impressions either help or hurt our chances for success. </li></ul><ul><li>Maximizing your chances of creating a positive, first impression: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Professional Dress </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Personal Hygiene </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Personal Behavior </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Make eye contact ­ it is important for establishing rapport. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Firm handshake – demonstrates confidence </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Watch your posture ­ poor posture conveys a lack of confidence. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Control your hands ­ don't grip your portfolio, fiddle with your tie or jewelry, or keep your hands in your pockets. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>SMILE! You will look better when you have a smile on your face and it will make you appear more natural and confident. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  23. 30. <ul><li>You may only have a few minutes to market yourself…make the most of your time. </li></ul><ul><li>What sets you apart from the crowd?  Why should the employer hire you over the hundreds of other candidates?  What are your strengths? </li></ul><ul><li>Start with your “Commercial” to introduce yourself and connect your background to the company’s needs. </li></ul><ul><li>Be articulate and show confidence! </li></ul>
  24. 31. <ul><li>“ Hello, I'm Steve. I'm a senior here at the University of Wyoming and I'm majoring in Marketing. I'm very interested in a marketing career. As you can see on my resume, I've just completed an internship in the Marketing Division of Proctor & Gamble and have taken courses in marketing strategy and analysis. I recently read about your company’s new marketing initiatives and am very interested to learn of marketing opportunities with your organization.” </li></ul>
  25. 32. <ul><li>You may miss out on possible opportunities if you pass up an employer because of preconceived ideas. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Many technical firms offer non-technical positions, and vice-versa. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Relate to what the employer is looking for.  </li></ul><ul><li>If there are specific skills you don't have enough experience in, then explain why the skills you do have are even more important. </li></ul>
  26. 33. <ul><li>You need to engage the recruiter - not simply hold a one sided conversation. </li></ul><ul><li>At a career fair, a conversation is your best friend, because the longer you spend talking with the recruiter, the more likely they are to remember you. </li></ul><ul><li>Use your conversation to convince the company they can use the skills, attitudes and experiences you bring to the table… relate them to what the employer is looking for. </li></ul><ul><li>Demonstrate that you have done your research and have practical knowledge about their company or industry. </li></ul><ul><li>Ask good questions that are specific to what you know about the company and will help you understand opportunities that may be available. </li></ul><ul><li>The unspoken bottom line: “Convince me as to why we should hire you?“ </li></ul><ul><li>As you leave each employer, learn next steps in their process and what you can do to advance your candidacy. </li></ul><ul><li>Be sure to take notes. Get business cards or names. Plan to write follow-up notes to your contacts. </li></ul>
  27. 35. The Interview

  29. 37. The Interview Don'ts <ul><li>Think the interviewer holds all the cards </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Two way street-Interview the Interviewer </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Lack Examples – Prove your points! </li></ul><ul><li>Talk only of money </li></ul><ul><li>Be late </li></ul><ul><li>Lack Enthusiasm – It’s important! </li></ul><ul><li>Forget to send a thank you note! </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It’s a nice touch… </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Not knowing about the company </li></ul><ul><li>What else??? </li></ul>
