WHY IS THE FAIR IN THE FALL?

Many larger organizations will do their recruiting for Summer 2016 interns and entry-level positions in the Fall of 2015.  While this may seem early to many students, this is the timeline that these larger organizations follow.  Therefore, we are holding a Fall Career & Internship Fair in the Fall so that Augsburg students can compete for these highly desired positions.  Should you wait until Spring of your senior year to apply for such positions, you may miss many deadlines.  It’s important for all Augsburg students graduating in Winter or Spring of 2016 to be “on the ball in the Fall” of 2015.  Start early and you will have more opportunities after graduation!

WHY ATTEND THE FAIR

  • Land an internship or full-time position. Many employers hire summer 2016 interns and entry-level positions starting in the Fall of 2015.
  • Explore opportunities in a variety of industries and majors.
  • Meet recruiters from over 20+ participating organizations and companies.
  • FREE to all students at Augsburg College.

STEPS FOR PARTICIPATING

  • Register  (must use a laptop or desktop: registering from cell phones may not work properly)
  • Have 20 copies of a well-prepared resume
  • Stop by the Strommen Center (Suite 100, CC) for Career Quick Stop on Tuesdays/Wednesdays 2:30-4:00 or

(not able to attend a prep session, look over the How To Prepare power point)

Prepare your resume

  • Use this resume template to get started and be sure to follow the formatting used.
  • Once you have used the template to create a first draft of your resume, bring your resume into Career Quick Stop and meet with a career coach.  Our staff can offer suggestions on how to best market your skills and experience on your resume!
  • Career Quick Stop: (15 minute meetings) (Begins the week of 9/7/2015) Tuesdays and Wednesdays 2:30-4:00 p.m., Strommen Center, Suite 100, Christensen Center.
  • If you need additional assistance with your resume, contact our office to set up an appointment to go over your resume.  You can reach us at 612-330-1148.

Find out what companies will be at the Fair.

  • Once you’ve selected the companies you want to target, do more extensive research on them. Find out the company’s size, general history, product(s), target market(s), positions they are hiring for, and any news or current events. The company’s web site is an excellent resource for such information.
    Employer Research Tip Sheet

Prepare your “Elevator Pitch”

  • Your 60 second “elevator pitch” will help you connect with employers, demonstrate your knowledge of the organization, and express your interest in the company. Think about how your education or experience relates to the organization’s needs. Following is a simple formula for creating your own pitch:
    1) Know your audience.  Brainstorm how your skills and experience might align with their needs.
    2) Share who you are and what you offer- a good strategy is to develop a list of 3 relevant skills, experiences, or strengths that might make you stand out.
    3) Share what you are looking for – explain what type of position (internship or full-time AND functional area) most interests you.
    4) Look over the Elevator Pitch Guide and/or watch the VIDEO: The Elevator Pitch

Dress professional 

AT THE FAIR

Check In

  • When you arrive to the fair, check in at the Strommen Career & Internship Services table. Here you will be given your name badge and a final list of organizations.

Make a good first impression

  • Use a firm handshake, make eye contact, and smile. These practices may not be the norm in all cultures, but they are standard practice in U.S. business culture and a big part of your first impression.
  • Address the representative by name (check name tag) and introduce yourself by name, major, and graduation date, using your prepared “Elevator Pitch” introduction.

Engage in conversation and highlight the following:

  • Demonstrate your knowledge of the field/organization. Show that you have done your research.
  • Relate your skills, interests, strengths and experiences to specific needs of the employer.
  • Highlight your previous or current work experiences that show your ability to perform related tasks and indicate your potential to acquire skills.
  • Refer to leadership roles or volunteer experiences coordinating committee activities, etc.
  • Be responsive to questions posed by company representatives.
  • Listen carefully; your conversation may yield vital information or leads that might affect the interview or lead to potential employment opportunities.
  • Offer your resume if it feels appropriate, but know that many employers do not accept them at the Fair.
  • Request a business card from the employer so that you can send an email to thank them for their time and follow up appropriately.
  • Before you move to the next booth, be sure to thank employers for the time they spent with you.

Keep notes to make follow-up a breeze

  • As you visit with employers, make notes on the back of business cards.  Things you may want to jot down include: 1) follow up you committed to 2) items in the conversation that stood out that may help an employer remember you; you can mention these items in our follow up  3) Any other action steps you need to take with that specific employer.

AFTER THE FAIR

Plan time to follow-up with employers and send thank you notes

  • Send thank you letters immediately – within two days if possible. Email is acceptable.
  • Review your notes and the commitments you made to follow up with employers.
  • In your message, reference the date and location of the Fair, and jog the recruiter’s memory of you. You can do this by mentioning any unique points you discussed together.
  • Reiterate your key points, highlight your qualifications, and share anything you forgot to mention at the fair.
  • Proofread your letter carefully (reading it aloud is a good way to catch errors).
  • You may want to include a copy of your resume as a courtesy.
  • Finally, take some time to reflect on the Fair and the positive steps you have taken for your future.
  • Remember this Fair isn’t your only opportunity to find an internship or job! Make an appointment to meet with a career coach by calling 612-330-1148 if you’d like to brainstorm additional strategies for finding opportunities both during and after Augsburg.
