Charlotte Job Fair - 5 Important Interview Tips

Here at the Charlotte Employment Guide, we are getting ready to throw an amazing Job Fair at the Sheraton Charlotte Airport. Part of putting together the event is helping the Charlotte community to engage with the hiring companies and find the best possible opportunities that can impact their lives.

Today, I wanted to share with you 5 important interview tips that you should remember when talking to these recruiters live on August 10th! My suggestion would be to jot down some notes, get your short pitch memorized and practice in front of the mirror.

5 Charlotte Job Fair Interview Tips To Remember
  1. Do Your Homework. Do some research on the companies that will be attending so you have an idea of what they are looking for and how you can bring value to their organization. 
  2. Watch Your Nonverbal Communication. The way you carry yourself, use your eyes and use your body language will tell an employer a lot about your character. Remember to carry yourself with confidence and integrity. 
  3. Don't Exaggerate Or Lie. Remember that many cases of your work history are only a phone call or a Google search away. Be prepared to back up any statements you make to recruiters at the job fair. 
  4. Emphasize The Positive. No matter your previous work situation, or the current environment, be sure to steer your conversation into a positive light. What you CAN do, what you HAVE done and what is possible with your skill sets are a great place to start. 
  5. Wait For An Offer To Bring Up Salary. You will want to stay away from pay on the first conversation. While this is an important factor, keep the conversations on your value and getting the job offer, or the 2nd interview. Then come in and ask about pay. 

Remember these 5 tips as you prepare for the Charlotte Job Fair on August 10th. These tips will help you look professional and give you an advantage over the hundreds of job seekers looking for the attention of the employers at the event.

If you haven't already, please register for the Charlotte Job Fair today.
