So two days into the Fall Quarter and I’m already talking about attending Career Fairs! That’s right- companies have been calling and emailing all summer because they want to meet you and share with you their employment opportunities. Due to the quarter system and starting a bit later than normal, companies are anxious to get to Northwestern and start recruiting. This isn’t a bad thing, but it leaves little time for NU students to prepare for the fall recruiting season.
With the Fall Job and Internship Fair on Tuesday, October 2nd from Noon-4pm in Norris University Center, 2nd Floor, I thought it would be good to share with you all a video UCS made at our Winter Fair last January. The advice still applies and comes straight from the recruiters. Most who will be here again this Fall!
In addition, UCS staff will be at Norris, Louis Room from Noon-4pm on Monday, October 1st hosting the One Stop: Career Fair Prep Walk-in Event. It is a stop in and come back later if you need to style program. Come in to get quick answers to your career fair related questions, receive a resume review, practice answering recruiter questions, practice your elevator speech, etc. We’ll also have Career Guides, listings of the companies who will be at the Career Fair and more resources.
See you all next week at one of THE networking events of the year at Northwestern! Go ‘Cats!
