Useful tips

Here are a few tips to make your Job Fair visit more successful.

CV / Resume

Take some paper copies along with you, and be prepared to provide a digital copy too, perhaps via USB or Wechat. Paper is handy because employers can directly write notes on it, but everyone also wants a digital copy for their records.  

Your Pitch

You may have heard of the ‘elevator pitch’, a quick sales pitch aimed at defining a product or service and its value in a minimum amount of time. You should consider doing similar for yourself. Think about how best to introduce yourself, your skills, your experience, and what you can bring to a company.

Dress Nicely

The event is an informal setting, but you should still approach it with some level of sensibility. First impressions count!
