You know how important it is to network if you’re going to access the hidden job market—and career fairs are excellent places to network. Instead of going to a career fair with the intent to land an interview, go with the intent to network and see how many new people you can meet. RELATED: Are you ready for a career fair? Watch these tutorials! A career fair is a virtual smorgasbord of contacts who are already working in the field you’ve chosen. It’s also packed with people like you, who could end up being business associates one day. You might even meet a potential mentor at a career fair. Bring a great value proposition letter, copies of your resume, business/networking cards, and a willingness to talk and ask lots of questions.
