Recapped: Tri-College & STEM Recruiting Day

Recapped: Tri-College & STEM Recruiting Day

What an event! Last Friday, the Career Offices of Haverford, Bryn Mawr and Swarthmore hosted a tremendous event in the field house: Tri-College and STEM Recruiting Day. Employers from STEM fields, non-profits, finance, education, and many other fields came to meet and hire Tri-Co students. Students arrived dressed in their best professional attire for morning registration and the career fair. After a brief orientation and an opportunity to take a professional headshot for their LinkedIn profiles, students reviewed the list of employers who had open interview spaces that afternoon. They then made their way to the career fair and chatted with employers to learn more about their companies. If they were interested in being considered for an interview later that day, they would share their resumes. The career fair wrapped up in the afternoon and employers submitted their picks to the career center staff during lunch. The remainder of the day was then dedicated to interviews! We had LOTS of students pick up additional interviews during the career fair, so the schedules were packed! All in all, the day was a great success! Happy employers and happy students make for happy career center staff! We hope to see you next year!...

How to Thrive (Not Just Survive) At A Career Fair

How to Thrive (Not Just Survive) At A Career Fair

By Mike Hertel The Spring recruitment season for both jobs and summer internships begins in earnest this coming Friday, January 25, with the Tri-College and STEM Recruitment Day here at Haverford College. Now, attending a job fair might not be your idea of a great time, but a little preparation can go a long way in making this a less stressful experience. Job fairs are a great way to meet employers, learn more about organizations, and identify jobs or internships for which you might want to apply. The Tri-College and STEM event is no exception! With over 50 companies and organizations registered, there are opportunities for students from practically every major.     So what do you need to do to prepare? Well, the first thing is to do your research. Know what organizations are coming, and identify the ones that you want to speak with most. The list of employers is available through Handshake on the Center for Career and Professional Advising website. Visit the employer’s website to learn more about their organization and the opportunities that they have available.  Prioritize the organizations and develop a plan to target them during the event.   Once you’ve identified the organizations you want to talk to, you will want to make sure you prepare your materials. Make sure your resume is top-notch and ready to go. Print several copies and have a padfolio or binder available in which to keep them. This will allow you to navigate the job fair and hand out resumes where you can. Check your wardrobe and make decisions on your professional attire for the next...
