HOW TO PREPARE FOR CAREER EXPO:

You should dress professionally (suit is best, but business casual is acceptable - no jeans, t-shirts, caps, athletic shoes, etc.), bring multiple copies of your resume and your ALL CARD, and be prepared to speak with employers. If you have a tight budget, see Professional Clothing Resources.

Be sure to check out our Spring Programs 2017 (workshops covering resumes, job searching, etc.) and visit Career Services (UC 225) to have your resume reviewed.  Walk-in hours (no appointment necessary) are M & W, 2:30 to 4 p.m. and Th., 3-4:45 p.m., or you may call 859-572-5680 for an appointment. If you cannot attend a resume workshop, see our Resume Preparation Guide.

You should research participating organizations prior to the Expo on HireNKU, the organizations' websites, and other online and print resources. The career fair preparation videos above will cover these research methods in detail. Don't forget to download the Career Fair Plus app (see links above).  For additional tips, see video: How to Work a Career Fair.
