So you did it. You went to the career fair, you talked to employers, and you discovered some companies you’re really excited about. The hard part is done, but now you need to continue networking in order to get that job or internship you learned about!
Follow up with employers!
With all those business cards and info sheets you collected, you can now start to reach out to the recruiters you met at the fair. An email or phone call is a great way to not only thank the employer for sharing information with you, but to also stand out and ask for an informational interview or inquire about positions available. You want to be on their radar when it comes time to hire new employees!
