Marketing & Communications Job & Internship Fair

Are you interested in pursuing a full-time, part-time, and/or an internship opportunity in Advertising, Broadcasting, Journalism, Marketing, Public Relations, Publishing, Radio/TV/Film, or Social Media?  Don’t miss out the chance to network with employers who are looking to hire HUSKIES at the 3rd annual Marking, Media and Communications Fair! This targeted fair will give you the opportunity to connect directly with recruiters from local and/or national companies who are looking to hire UW students for job or internship opportunities.

TIPS ON HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE FAIR

  • Look at sample resumes in the Career Guide and consider using resume-help resources provided by the Career & Internship Center
  • Once you have your resume drafted, stop by for a Same-Day Session to get some feedback on it
  • Take a look at the attending employers list (see below) and spend a few minutes researching the employers you are interested in meeting with by visiting their web sites and doing a quick review of them online. The list is updated regularly
  • Prepare and practice your introduction. 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
  • Attend the Career Fair Success workshop to learn how to prepare, what to bring, what to say, and how to follow-up

WHAT YOU SHOULD WEAR

  • Your style of dress may vary according to the type of field you’re considering and the employers you plan to meet with. However, you’ll find that most employers will be wearing business-casual attire, which is a safe bet for you as well. For example, consider wearing pressed slacks or a skirt with a blouse, sweater, or collared shirt.

THE DAY OF THE FAIR

  • Bring 5-10 copies of your well-prepared resumes to the fair
  • Arrive early to interact with employers
  • Greet employers with a smile, handshake, and introduce yourself
  • Collect business cards
  • Send a thank you note to interested employers you talked with
  • Lockers or storage facilities are not available; to increase the ease with which you can move through the fair, we recommend trying to minimize what you bring with you
  • Please bring your Husky card and have it ready for check-in purposes
