So, you attended the Partnership in Employment Fair yesterday and now amidst stacks of business cards, you are wondering the next step. That, my friends is simple: Follow up! If I could give one piece of advice to career fair attendees, write thank you cards (not e-mails!). These cards allow you to stand out against fellow job hunters and make you seem professional and grateful.
- Organize all materials gathered from the fair.
- Thank the recruiter for his/her time by sending a card.
- Contact the companies that interested you most, mentioning the contact made at the fair.
- In the following weeks, keep time open for possible interviews.
