Professional dress required
Get your resume ready and prepare your professional attire. It's time to learn how to conquer the career fair.
Join Missouri S&T for the bi-annual Career Fair. Learn how to get started, who to talk to, and the best practices for this virtual career fair.
What?: Missouri S&T students are quite used to being courted by hundreds of company recruiters each Fall and this year is no exception. On Tuesday, September 26th, S&T will host the Fall Career Fair. Here is what you need to know to successfully traverse the fair this year.
When/Where?: The fair is Tuesday, Sept. 26, at the Gale-Bullman Rec Center, from 9am to 3pm.
How?: The fair can (and should) be accessed using the Career Fair Plus mobile app. From there students will be able to filter by major and industry to plan their route through the fair with an interactive map that gives details of each company. There will not be a printed map, plan to bring your mobile device to the fair.
What Else?: Students should plan to adhere to the strict professional dress code for the Career Fair. The COER in Norwood Hall has resources, including the free Career Closet, to help students to acquire professional dress, so that the requirement doesn’t operate as a barrier to participation.
Anything Else?: Don’t forget to bring printed copies of your resume to the in-person fair and upload your resume to your Career Fair Plus profile. This is VERY important. Employers can’t (and won’t) contact you for follow-up questions/offers if they don’t have your contact information.
Yeah, but what about COVID?: All attendees to the career fair will be encouraged to wear masks, regardless of vaccination status. Handshaking is highly discouraged. There will be one-way traffic in the gym and hand sanitizing stations throughout. Employer booths will be separated by curtains. This is an important event for your (and your peers) future. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 on the day of the fair, please do not attend the fair and instead contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information on alternate ways to connect with employers outside of the fair.
Is that it?: Yeah, pretty much. Go download the app, build your profile, upload your resume, print your resume, look at attending companies, map your route, prepare your power introduction, find your professional clothes, buy a comb, use a comb, get a job/co-op/internship. That’s it.
Need help? Contact email@example.com with any questions you may have.
