Frequently Asked Questions

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND THE JOB FAIR?
It is the least expensive and most time efficient way to meet and interview with a large number of employers. You are competing only with your peers, not the entire job market. In the past, this fair has a proven track record of hires for PSC students.

The Job Fair 2009 is NOT an excused absence from class. Be sure to request your instructor’s permission well in advance. If an instructor requires verification that you attended the Job Fair, you can pick up a verification form from one of our staff members at the Job Fair.

HOW SHOULD YOU DRESS?

Neat, clean, absolutely professional. Dress as you would for a job interview.

WHAT TO BRING TO THE FAIR?

Bring a notebook to write down important information and bring copies of resumes to leave with interested employers. You must have a resume to get the most from the fair. Stop by The Bagley Center to have your resume critiqued. We’re open Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for drop-in advising—no appointment necessary.

WHO ARE THE EMPLOYERS ATTENDING?
“Why isn’t my major represented?” These are two of the most frequently asked questions about the reality of supply and demand. Simply put, employers seek workers, not majors and those employers with the heaviest demands for new staff will attend job fairs. If the large number of employers does not meet your need, it may be your first clue that your job search needs more attention.

WHAT IF YOU CAN’T MAKE IT TO THE JOB FAIR THAT DAY?
If you can’t make it to the Job Fair, write, e-mail, or call the employers listed in the directory on the NHCUC website and express your interest in their organization.
