Job Fair And Career Tips

1. How often to you get to meet 100 hiring managers in one day? Happens all the time at job fairs.

2. Its hard to trust someone you have never met. Particularly, someone who approaches you on the web asking for something. When you apply for a job online that is essentially the situation a recruiter finds herself in. A stranger wants something from her and wants her to believe that everything he claims on a resume is 100% true. This is why recruiters tend to rely on trusted peers for referrals versus advertising positions online. If you are not in the recruiters extended professional network (getting referred by a shared peer) you are much better off connecting with the company at a job fair. It’s far easier to trust someone when you can look them in their eyes versus briefly scanning their digital application.

3. Best way to get a hiring manager's attention. Stand right in front of them at a job fair.

4. Employers surveyed at job fairs regularly state that they prefer candidates who are social. That means that candidates who show energy and enthusiasm, smile, make eye contact, ask questions and have something to say about themselves will automatically be preferred over candidates who look at the floor, mumble, and seem distracted. Treat employers like you would treat your favorite friends and watch the opportunities come your way!

5. Guy likely not to be promoted: "Why hasn't someone done something about this?"

Build Your Resume With Volunteerism
It’s rare that an employer gives you an advance notice that you are losing your job. Typically what happens is you go to work as if it’s a normal day and are later approached by your supervisor or Human Resources representative and told you are being let go. Of course when this happens the vast majority of people don't have another job immediately lined up and are now facing all the challenges that come with unemployment and starting over. One of those challenges will be an employment gap on their resume. While there are several ways to avoid an employment gap on your resume, volunteering is an excellent option for several reasons.

Job fairs: why businesses attend and you should too.
Many Pittsburgh companies will advertise the positions they are seeking to fill prior to the job fair they will be attending. However, even if you don’t see a job you are interested in, or qualified for, you should use job fair to meet the hiring managers for the Pittsburgh companies in attendance. There are several reasons why.

First, meeting an insider at that company will give you an opportunity to pitch your resume and perhaps see where else you might fit into their organization. This is especially helpful if that particular company is on your list of targeted businesses in Pittsburgh for who you would like to work.

How a Pittsburgh job fair is like speed dating.
A second reason to attend a job fair in Pittsburgh is to get a lot of practice interviewing. Ever hear of “speed dating”? This is an event where a large group of single people meet each other one on one for only a few minutes. In that few minutes they have an opportunity to learn about each other and pitch the reasons why they would make a good date.

Much like speed dating, job fair interviews in Pittsburgh are short and specific. That means you have to be comfortable giving your own interview version of an elevator speech. Doing this with 10-15 interviewers in one day versus 30 days will quickly allow you to polish your presentation.

Human resource professionals and their staff of interviewers are some of the best connected people in business.
Just like a salesperson, who didn’t make a sale, knows to ask for references of people who would be interested in what she is selling, you should ask the interviewer if she knows another Pittsburgh employer who would be interested in your work experience. If you are referred to someone else be sure to mention the name of the person who referred you when you meet the other employer!

Any time you meet a recruiter or employer at a Pittsburgh job fair be sure to get their business card. That will give you key contact information should you need it now to follow up on a conversation you had or in the future when you find other job openings at that company. On the back of the card write down something about that person that will help you remember them in more detail. Find a Pittsburgh job fair now!

Play Like Troy Polamalu When Searching For Work
By Mike Bowman

On December 12, 2010, there was a vivid picture of intensity on the football field in Heinz Stadium in Pittsburgh. In the game’s second quarter Steelers’ strong safety Troy Polamalu intercepted a pass thrown by Carson Palmer. 45 yards away from the end zone Polamalu was determined to turn this opportunity into 6 points.

He fought for every one of those 45 yards, running like a hungry bear was chasing him. In those last 5 yards he brought together all of his intensity, experience, and training into superhuman like athleticism as he practically flew parallel to the ground into the very tip of the end zone to collect his 6 points.

There was still half a game to play. It wasn’t like the Steelers desperately need the 6 points at that moment in the game, but that is how Polamalu plays. He plays like the team does desperately need those points, and more often than naught the team has been grateful to have those points in its’ pocket when unexpected complications happen later in the game. That is why he is one of the league’s most valuable players.

Key Takeaway For Job Seekers: That is the same kind of intensity you must apply to earning more income and protecting your standard of living. The day your income is reduced or eliminated is the day your savings and unemployment benefits start to erode. Don’t believe you are ok because you have 26+ weeks of unemployment insurance. Play to win right now; don’t wait 26 weeks to attempt scoring a new job.

How? Start by learning how to be successful at job fairs. Job fairs give you an opportunity to meet recruiters and hiring managers face to face. Job fairs also allow you to make your pitch to a human being rather than a company’s screening software, thus giving you a much better chance of getting the job you really want.

Volunteering: A Job Search Strategy
Volunteering your time as a job search strategy makes sense. Not only are you helping out the community at large, but you could be learning new, marketable skills, adding relevant experience to your resume, and meeting new people to add to your professional network; people who can help you find a new job. Carefully select where you volunteer your time. Yes, volunteer at an organization you are passionate about, but find opportunities that let you meet new people and enhance / learn new job skills.

Here is a list of places you can volunteer in Pittsburgh.

1. Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council
