Making the most of the Fair Below are some helpful tips on how to make the most of the Brackenhurst Employers Fair.
Before the Fair
Review the list of organisations featured in this brochure, click on their logo (which will take you to their website) Note which organisations you wish to visit & bring this with you on the day.
Check the organisation entries in this guide
Review the employers list and make a plan. If a stand is busy, move on and come back. Use the notes sections to write details about the organisations, individuals and your conversations.
Walk confidently and smile
Carry yourself with confidence.
Be the first to extend your hand, which shows eagerness to interact. Remember eye contact and body language are important, so try to avoid any negative body language, such as folding your arms.
Listen carefully and show interest
Ask open-ended questions (using terms like how, what, why, where, when...). Show genuine interest and get their opinion on any issues you may encounter during the application process. Don’t spend too much time with one organisation. If appropriate, suggest a follow-up activity such as LinkedIn, email or a phone call and move on. Remember to thank them and say goodbye before leaving.
