Science Job & Internship Recruiting Expo
Thursday, January 28, 2016
2:00-5:00pm, MGH Commons
This recruiting expo will give you the opportunity to connect directly with recruiters from local and/or national companies who are looking to hire UW science students for job or internship opportunities.
- Watch and review our online workshops on Career Fair Success and Effective Resumes and Cover Letters
- Prepare your resume.< Consider attending a Same Day Session from 10am-3pm Monday-Friday to have your resume reviewed by one of our staff members!
- Resume Workshop. The Career Center holds regular resume workshops almost every week. Once you have your resume drafted, stop by for a Same-Day Session for a critique.
- Research the employers. Spend a few minutes researching the employers who are attending. Research those employers you’re interested in meeting with by visiting their web sites and doing a quick review of them online and in trade magazines.
- Practice your approach. What do you want the employer to know about you? Which of your skills and past experiences do you want to highlight? Have a short 15-second “sales pitch” ready and make sure to build in some good questions of your own to ask the employer.
- Make sure to attend our Career Fair Success workshop for help in all these areas
- No matter how strong a candidate you are, if you show up at a recruiting event in jeans and flip-flops or looking like you've just rolled out of bed, you're not likely to be taken as seriously as if you've taken the time to dress for the occasion.
- We recommend business casual attire (or better) for this event which means the following:
o For men:
Slacks, a button-down shirt or collared shirt, dress shoes (no sneakers please, however trendy the Vans-with-a-suit look is right now), a tie is optional. Another option would be a suit.
o For women:
Slacks or a skirt with a blouse or collared shirt, blazer or jacket optional. Another option is a suit.
Please keep in mind that lockers and storage facilities are not available at this event so consider asking an adviser if you can leave things in their office, asking a buddy to keep an eye out for you while he or she studies at the library, or make a quick run home to drop your things off before the event.
