Research about the job fair and the participating companies. Most job fairs nowadays are promoted online. Some even have dedicated websites for the event. Use this to your advantage, and research what companies would be participating. This way, you will at least have an idea about how many resumes you will bring, or if the job fair is even worth your time.

Dress appropriately. Even if you are not sure that you are going to be asked to sit down for an interview, it’s not an excuse to dress casually. Treat attending the job fairs as attending an actual job interview. First impressions do last, one cannot say that enough because it’s absolutely true especially when it comes to this kind of situation.

Be prepared. Bring all the essentials which include, a pen, a notepad, enough copies of your resume, and your portfolio. Having said this, it’s also important that you get a bag that holds all of these properly and which you could still carry comfortably. Also, wear shoes that are comfortable, but still professional-looking. Job fairs are usually whole-day events.

Modify your resume. Expect a lot of fellow job hunters in these job fairs, and the recruitment people might have to entertain a lot of you that day. You don’t want to waste the time of the recruitment person by giving him a few pages of your resume. Instead, modify it to be attractive, concise, and professional.

Practice at home about possible interview questions. These questions may of course depend on the position that you are applying for, but there are pretty general questions that all recruitment officers ask, like what your career objectives are, your strengths and weaknesses, and how you see yourself in a few years’ time.

Top 5 Tips for Attending the Career Circle 2010: The Alumni Fair

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010

The Career Circle 2010 is heading out to be the most important career fair anyone could ever attend this year. Make sure that you are already pre-registered before the month is over to get access to the biggest companies and get a chance to be hired on the spot. But you need to be prepared before you head out to Gateway Mall on August 16-18 to attend the Career Circle 2010. Here are top 5 tips to guide you through the career fair and to make sure that you manage your time well.

career circle 2010

1.Always bring the essentials. Make sure that you have enough resumes to last you throughout the 3-day career fair. There are going to be a lot of companies at the Career Circle 2010, so you want to make sure that you are always prepared to present a resume when it’s requested.

Some of the most known companies that are going to be featured in the career fair are Sykes Asia, IBM, Pascual Laboratories, Vidres, and a lot more. If you have been dying to begin your career with these companies, attending the Career Circle 2010 is the perfect opportunity.

2.Research enough information about the participating companies. It’s the rule of thumb that when you apply for a position in a particular company, you should definitely be familiar with the services offered by the company, or at least the specific role that you would be having should you get hired on the spot. Being knowledgeable about the position and the company are very good credibility boosters, so even before you head out there, you should already learn a thing or two about the participating companies in the career fair, and the following information should be able to help you a little.

Sykes Asia – Although known to many as a call center company, Sykes has a lot more services to offer, and a number of non-agent positions to offer job seekers. For instance, you can join their support group if you are looking for a career as a web designer and developer, core skills trainer, software engineer, and more.

IBM – For some, IBM is just another company for computers. For others, IBM is another call center company where they can earn a lot from. But IBM is also more than just a call center company. From developing hardwares and softwares to research to consulting, IBM has proven to be one of the top companies to rely one. So if you see yourself growing with IBM, there are positions available such as technical writer, Tivoli storage team lead, managing consultant, and more!

NCO – Known to be currently the world’s biggest collection agency, NCO focuses in customer service and outsourcing. Catering to clients worldwide, it is just proper for NCO to be needing a diverse group of individuals as well to join their team. If you would like to join their team as a Spanish-speaking agent, collections agent, or a technical support representatives for a gaming console account, get ready with your resume and portfolio before you head out to the Career Circle 2010!

3.Consider more options. As mentioned previously, while the companies are primarily known in the call center industry, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they offer only call center agent positions. Sometimes, all it takes is a having a broader perspective to see what you’ve been searching for all this time. So scratch the concept that these companies have only call center agents in their companies. You are going to get more and better options if you open your mind to these kinds of opportunities and you may land in the best job you will ever have.

4.Manage your time effectively. The Career Circle 2010 is a perfect opportunity for you to not only find a job, but to find out more about the different industries today and learn about the changing trends of the job hunting process. If you want to make the most of your time during the three-day seminar, you need to use your time wisely. Remember, there are a lot more in store for you in the Career Circle 2010 and believe me, you don’t want to miss out!

What you can do is find out about the participating companies, and create a schedule on how many you can visit in a day. Then allot some time participating in the learning sessions that are also going to be conducted and which are headed by the participating companies.

5.Enjoy! The Career Circle 2010 is not like an ordinary job fair you have attended in the past. It’s a career event. You are going to experience more than send your applications to these companies. There’s an open mic, contests, prizes to be won like GCs to Netopia, MEMO, Bridge Language School, plus a lot of other cool stuff from Sykes Asia, Roundbox Solutions, OJTCareers.com, TrabahoPhilippines.com, and more!
