Spring Career Fair


Are you looking for that perfect career position, summer job, or internship opportunity? Search no more! The annual Spring Career Fair–sponsored by the Career & Internship Center–will bring more than 140 employers to the Seattle campus who are looking to hire Huskies of all majors and class levels from all three UW campuses. This is a great opportunity that you definitely don’t want to miss!

WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND:

  • Your potential employers want to meet you IN PERSON. This is the best opportunity for you to make a great impression to the recruiters as many of the attending employers conduct follow-up interviews after the fair and/or participate in the On-Campus Interviews at the Career & Internship Center.
  • Recruiters hire students who attend fairs. The majority of the employers who attend our career fairs and complete our surveys indicate that they’ve extended offers to candidates they met at the fair.
  • Employers aren’t just looking for programmers and accountants. Many employers who attended last year’s Spring Career Fair were open to ALL MAJORS! DO use The Fairs App to find out what majors and positions attending employers are looking to recruit for at this fair.

Tips On How To Prep For The Fair:

  • Look at sample resumes in the Career Guide
  • Once you have your resume drafted, stop by for a Same-Day Session and/or ResumeFest to get some feedback on it
  • Submit your resume to the 2017 Spring Career Resume Book! Many attending employers have purchased access to this book in the hopes of identifying talented UW candidates. Whether or not you’re attending the fair, don’t miss this opportunity to stand out! Please see instructions below on how to submit your resume:
    1. Login to your HuskyJobs account at https://c103-shib.symplicity.com/sso
    2. From the “Documents” tab on the your left hand navigation pane, select “Opt-in Resume Books”
    3. Select the DropDown menu under the Resume Book you’d like to submit your resume to
  • Take a look at the attending employers below using The Fairs App. 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 develop some good questions of your own to ask the employer(s)
  • 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 10-15 copies of your well-prepared resume to the fair
  • Greet employers with a smile and handshake
  • Collect business cards
  • Send a thank you note to 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

ATTENDING EMPLOYERS:

  • Use The Fairs App to access information about the Spring Career Fair (attending employers, positions, position types, majors, and class levels employers are looking to recruit at the fair). The Fairs App is available to download to your iphone/ipad from the Apple App Store or from Google Play Store for Android phones

A special THANKS to our 2017 Spring Career Fair sponsors!
