                   www.uwlax.edu/careerservices
                 *Seek out Career Services staff for questions and advice.
                         Look for blue Career Services apparel.

            Get the most out of this Career Event with these tips.
  •   Professional attire is always encouraged.
  •   Greet employers with a smile and a firm handshake. Don’t cruise the fair with a
      group of friends; make a positive impression by talking with employers on your
      own.
  •   Take copies of your updated resume. Some employers may collect them; others
      will not. Some may ask you questions and make note of your responses on your
      resume. Some employers will conduct “mini-interviews” at their table, others may
      conduct more formal interviews at another location at the Expo. Be prepared for
      any of these circumstances.
  •   A little preparation goes a long way:
          o Be ready with a quick (no more than 30 seconds) introduction that you can
               give employers, including your name, major, career interests and a
               summary of your relevant experience.
          o Prepare a few questions in advance that you can ask about their
               organization and types of positions available. See the list below for
               suggestions.
  •   Prioritize your list of employers to make good use of your time. For UW-L career
      events, a list of registered employers is available on the Career Services home
      page and will also be available at the event.
  •   Some employers may leave early to get to their next recruiting event or to get
      back home. Don't wait until the end of the fair to see the employers in which you
      are most interested.
  •   Ask for a business card from employers. This will make your follow-up with them
      much easier.

Wondering What to Ask Employers at the Career Expo? Try These Suggestions!!!

  •   What are the entry-level positions at your organization?
  •   What skills/majors are you seeking?
  •   Does your organization offer internships?
  •   What personal characteristics are required to succeed in your organization?
      (Find out what variables can make the difference between being hired and not
      being hired.)
  •   Tell me about your career path and why you like working for your current
      employer.
   Employers with a * have on-campus interviews scheduled on the date indicated.
   You can sign up for interviews during the Career Expo at the Career Services
   Tables or at www.uwlax.edu/careerservices
