Career fair prep resources

  • Prepare your resume - check out resume ‘templates’ here and book a resume review with [contact TBD] through MavTrack or ACDC by emailing unoacdc@unomaha.edu.
  • Elevator pitch - Consider preparing a brief 30-second introduction about who you are and why you are interested in the company. Practice this introduction before you come to the fair. Please visit Career Services before the Fair to polish your introduction or "elevator speech," review your resume, and schedule a mock interview so you are prepared.
  • What to wear - Career fair dress should be either business casual or business formal. If you have a suit, plan to wear that to the fair. If you do not have a suit, dress slacks, a skirt, button-down shirt with a tie, or a knit blouse are appropriate. You want to feel professional and confident. Nice jeans and a work appropriate shirt are acceptable if you are in between classes. Gym shoes/clothing, torn clothing, and revealing clothing are not appropriate for a career fair, even if you are just visiting for class participation credit.
    Business Formal Examples: Black or dark gray suit coat with slacks or skirt, ties and high heels or dress shoes
    Business Casual Examples: comfortable and colorful examples of pants, shirts and dresses.
  • What to bring - Be sure to bring many copies of your updated, polished resume as well as a portfolio or folder to carry it in. Also remember a pen or pencil, notepad, and breath mints.
  • How to prepare - In addition to attending a resume review or career coaching appointment, check out the participating employers on Handshake and begin researching those that interest you in advance. Visit company websites. Check current job openings to get an idea of what skills and education are required to work for that company.
  • How-To Videos and Resources - Watch these quick, helpful videos made by our Career Services Experts on how to make the most of your time at the Career Fair!
