Job Fairs on Campus
Twice a year the Job Placement Center sponsors seasonal job fairs for students, alumni and community members to meet the employers directly. These are networking opportunities. We invite and encourage potential employees to attend with resumes in hand, dressed for success. This is also a opportunity to obtain on-the-spot job interviews with future employers.
Testimonial and success stories
The Annual Healthcare/Dental Career Fair
Skilled nursing facilities, home healthcare providers, hospitals, dentists and dental labs from the Bay Area will be available to take applications for employment.
Also attending are universities presenting transfer opportunities in the healthcare field. This is an excellent opportunity for nurses, CNAs, RDA, dental assistants and homecare employees to network.
WHAT TO WEAR ON CAREER DAY
- Dress professionally, as you are going on a job interview and make a positive first impression.
- Suits are best to wear:
- Black, brown, charcoal gray or navy
- Pressed shirt/blouse and pants/skirt
Men - Ties are a nice addition and should complement the outfit, not overwhelm with loud colors or cartoon characters.
Ladies - Skirts should extend beyond the end of your finger tips with your arms at your sides when you are standing. Heels 2 inches or less.
Everyone - Closed toe and comfortable shoes, as you will be walking and standing for some time.
- No gum. Bring breath mints and consume these before meeting with recruiters.
WHAT TO BRING
- 25 clean copies of your resume on quality paper to hand out. Don't be alarmed if some recruiters refer you to their website to apply online.
- A portfolio/briefcase to hold the resumes, a legal pad, and a quality pen to write down contacts and notes from each encounter.
- A business/networking card to distribute to employers.
JOB SEEKER SUCCESS TIPS
- Decide on a plan and some goals for the career day; what do you hope to get out of it and how can you make the most effective use of your time?
- Check our website often for an updated list of employers attending. Identify those you are interested in and check their websites to do some basic research on the companies planning to recruit in your major specifically, sometimes there are "hidden" opportunities if you ask.
- Prepare a one-minute "commercial" that introduces yourself, telling the employer a little about your professional qualifications, and why you are interested in exploring a career with them.
- Practice the "commercial" ahead of time, and the questions you would like to ask the employers.
- Dress and act professionally.
- At the event, review the list of attending companies so you can organize your time efficiently.
- Show interest and enthusiasm by smiling and speaking clearly. Provide recruiters with a firm handshake.
