If you attended the hiring fair, you can fill out survey below and be entered into a drawing where you can win money!! Good luck 🙂
Our last required step for the Hiring Fair is a post-survey. All students who complete this survey will be entered into a drawing for a $50 Amazon Gift Certificate.
For THURSDAY Hiring Fair: We’ll meet at LCC at 12:00 for lunch and get ready for the hiring fair (please dress appropriately and be groomed and ready w resumes etc).
At 12:20 we’ll walk together as a group to SPARKLAB (across the street from HULT center).
Important info from the organizer for the Hiring Fair (4/21):
***** Bring Face Masks!!
Due to high demand from schools and industry, we will have two event locations (two blocks apart). ALL students will be dropped off at SparkLab and we will have volunteers walk students and chaperones to the second location. Groups will switch mid-way through the event so they have time to visit all booths. Students will not walk between sites without a chaperone.
Students will have just under 45 minutes at each location (13 booths at ea. site) and we will have resume support rooms staffed with volunteers at both sites. We will also have printers available if students need additional copies of their resumes.
- Attached is the student prep plan – This walks students through resume building, interviewing tips, how to present themselves professionally, etc.
- Please be sure students have reviewed this prep plan prior to the HF so they can come as prepared as possible!
WHAT STUDENTS SHOULD BRING:
- Mask (must be worn at all times)
- Digital copy of their resume (Google Drive log-in info or as a file on a thumb drive) if they plan to seek resume support or printing services
- Students will be WALKING two blocks from site A to site B, so please have them bring coats if it is cold or raining!
Location: Spark Lab (22nd W 7th Ave.)
Before you arrive on Thursday, April 21st please have your students take this required pre–survey. It will only take a few minutes.
