At the Job Fair - Ask Questions!

With the Charlotte Job Fair fast approaching this week, I thought we'd talk about what to do if a recruiter asks you to apply online. So great, you got yourself up out of bed (or out of work) to trek down to this career fair and all you have to do is apply online?

Yes, it can be annoying but your time is not wasted. Use the time you have taken to talk to the recruiter. This person might be the one to make the decision on hiring you. Ask them questions about the job and the hiring process -- What kind of person are they looking for? How long does it take to fill the position? Is there any testing required? How many interviews should you expect?

You might even get some valuable feedback on your resume and get a better idea of your chances of being considered for the job.

Also keep in mind that at The Employment Guide Job Fair, we'll have computers for you to apply right at the career fair if an employer would prefer you submit an application through their website.

If you need more advice, check out this video of advice straight from the recruiters.
So if you're in the Charlotte area, click here for more details on the job fair September 11 from 9:00am - 1:00pm

See you there!
