In our last blog, we looked at how pre-planning will help you get the most out of a job fair. Your pre-planning should include knowing the route to the event, making sure your clothes are appropriate, having a rehearsed elevator pitch, and coming equipped with plenty of copies of a great resume. Your resume should be free of typographical errors, that's a given, but there a couple of other important things to keep in mind when handing out your resume at a job fair.
If you are in the job market, job fairs are a great way to get in front of a lot of different employers at once.

The candidate will do the same. Then, the two part ways.
I'm sure by now you know the basics when it comes to nailing an interview.
