Tips for a Successful Career Day

  • Drink caffeine! It’s a long day and even though we’re all interested in the topics, it’s an overwhelming day of being “on” and meeting lots of new people. Keep your energy up and your attention focused.

  • Dress smart and be comfortable! Don’t be overkill – jeans are fine – but look good. These are people you want to meet and know; they might give you your next internship or job. You’ll never walk more than a few blocks, but you probably don’t want to do that in uncomfortable shoes. Be smart: Check the weather the night before and don’t get caught in the wind/rain/heat/cold.

  • Bring something to take notes with: a tablet, a notebook, and pen; something you can use to jot down tips, notes, questions or contact information.

  • DON’T bring resumes or business cards! This is your day to meet *them.* Collect business cards, take notes, then send thank-you notes and reach out to everyone you meet. It’s your job to turn these introductions into meaningful connections – not theirs.

  • Ask questions! Ask about clients, culture, and processes; ask about internships and openings; ask about others’ experiences when they were just getting started and were in your shoes. Be curious!

  • Don’t just network with agencies, network with each other. You’ll have students from all over the state at this event, all of the similar ages and pursuing similar degrees. Build your network of peers too, not just agencies. Make friends.
