Tips for How to Succeed at A Career Fair:

 

  1. Dress for The Job You Want: While the dress code in the USAA San Antonio office is business casual, plan to attend a job fair in professional and conservative business attire to help you present a professional front.
  2. Have a Plan.  Create a personal plan for the companies that you want to meet with and have a personalized cover letter and resume for each of these companies. You can find what companies will be attending on the event web page.
  3. Be Prepared to Interview.  Be ready and able to have a 30-60-minute interview with a company.  If you make a great first impression, the company may want to interview right on the spot.
  4. Manage Your Time.       Plan to spend 10-15 minutes per employer that you are interested. This means that you need a step-by-step list of employers that you will approach.
  5. Practice Interviewing Skills.       The DAV-RecruitMilitary Job Fair offers interviewing tips and other resources. Rehearsing interview questions and giving your resume a final polish is always highly recommended.
