How to Survive Your First Career Fair in 10 Steps

6. Be confident
You want recruiters to remember you. Even if you aren’t feeling particularly confident on the day of the event, convince others (and yourself!) by using positive body language. Walk upright, speak clearly, project your voice, enunciate and make eye contact with everyone you speak to. Don’t slouch, avert your eyes, fold your arms, or mumble; it will make you seem distracted and unprofessional. Greet the employer with a firm handshake and a smile. Display your interest by being attentive and asking them the questions you have prepared. Make sure to exchange contact information before concluding the conversation with a handshake.
