 Expo Tips for Students

The Expo is a great chance to learn about careers and hear from employers about next steps after graduation. Planning ahead will help you make the most of the virtual event. Students can:

Read up beforehand.

Visit our exhibitor page to get a sense of what employers will be present. Don’t just scan the list for familiar names! Research smaller employers and unexpected exhibitors, too.

Go on a fact-finding mission.

Select five employers to visit and brainstorm questions for them. (What skills are necessary for this career? What type of education/training do you need? What is the salary range? What do you like most about your job, and what are the biggest challenges? Here are a few more.)
