Getting Ready for a Career Fair is Like Baking a Cake

foodpics 217aWhat to Wear to a Career Fair

Time to dig through your closet and push aside your favorite sweatpants and t-shirts. Remember, this could be your first meeting with a future employer so dress to impress!

Ladies: Style your hair so it doesn’t fall into your face; less is more when it comes to jewelry, makeup, and perfume; no flashy labels or designer names; no chipping nail polish; no cleavage; closed or peep-toe shoes, moderate heel, no sling backs

Gentlemen: Comb your hair; clean the dirt out from underneath your finger nails; conservative on jewelry and cologne; wear dark socks; no flashy ties; wear dark colored slacks or a suit (black can sometimes seems too formal)

Overall, dress like your going to meet your new love-interest’s parents for dinner! And remember, that your iron is your new best friend.

Now that we are all anticipating this next networking opportunity, what should we be prepared to do as  we walk into that big, shiny ballroom with potential employers lined up like ducks in a row? This answer was given to us by the companies that attended last year’s Engineering & Computer Science Expo. Although they were very impressed with everything that Gonzaga students have to offer, they wish we were more prepared! Knowing some key points about a company’s mission and corporate culture will set you apart when you attempt to pick the

brains of these attending employers. And I hate to say it, but that means you have to do some research! Here’s a list of the companies that will be at the career fair next week:

  • Areva T&D
  • Avista Corp.
  • Barnard Construction Company, Inc
  • Coffman Engineers, Inc.
  • Fast Enterprises
  • FBI – Seattle Division
  • Itron
  • Janicki Industries, Inc.
  • Jigsaw Data Corp.
  • Kiewit Pacific Co.
  • Liberty Mutual Group
  • Max J. Kueney Co.
  • McKinstry
  • Montana Dept. of Transportation
  • Next IT Corp.
  • Oregon Dept. of Transportation
  • OST Spokane
  • PACCAR
  • POWER Engineers, Inc.
  • Puget Sound Energy
  • Puget Sound Naval Shipyard
  • SCAFCO Corp.
  • Tacoma Power
  • Turner Construction Co.
  • U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
  • U.S. Navy Officers Programs

Find a company that sparks some interest, do a little research, go to the career fair next week and place your smiling face in front of that employer to “wow” them with who you are and what you have to offer!
