Fair Tip of the Week: Research Companies and Organizations

Who is going to make a better impression, a student who walks up to a recruiter and says "So, what does your company do?" or a student who says "I am really interested in your management training program, can you tell me more about it?" The more research you can do, the more prepared you will be and the more impressed the recruiter will be. Do your homework online by viewing which companies will be attending the fair and researching them. A full list of the companies attending the IU South Bend Career and Internship Fair can be viewed here: careerevents.iusb.edu/career-fair/part_org2/index.php.

Also, don't be afraid to expand your focus. Be willing to approach employers that appear unrelated to your major. Technical companies offer non-technical positions, and vice-versa. A technical company may have openings in human resources, marketing, public relations or accounting. Employers often seek candidates with a strong liberal arts background.
