I know lots of us are on the job hunt these days, and today's job fair gave me the idea to share some of my job search tips with y'all (and I'd love to hear yours as well!).
First, whether it's a job fair or an interview, dress to impress. Your outfit is the first impression potential employers will have of you. Today, I wore a black shirt dress, black pumps, a strand of pearls, and my pearl earrings.
Keep jewelry to a minimum and choose classic pieces.I carried my Longchamp tote for a splash of color, and I carried my resumes and business cards in a portfolio like this:
You don't have to have a portfolio with your school's logo on it; a clean folder (no crazy designs) works perfectly fine. Make sure to have a pen with you and a place to put all the goodies they will give you (booths at job fairs often hand out water bottles, huggies, pens, etc.)
Make sure your resume is organized and updated with no misspelled words. Your resume is your representation on 1-2 pages. And lastly-the best first impression is a smile and a confident handshake. You deserve the job now show them why! :)
