If a stand is busy, move on and come back. • Use the notes sections to write any details about the organisations/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.
