If a stand is busy, move on and come back. • Use the notes sections to write any details about the companies/individuals. 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 • You are primarily here to obtain a job and information. • 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. Try not to 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. Keep realistic expectations • Remember these recruiters have live vacancies and are interested in filling them! • You are here to impress, make connections and gather useful information to support your immediate or future applications. • NTU’s Employability Team are here to support you – come and say hello and find out how we can help you over the next few months and three years after you graduate .
