For Students: How to prepare for the Employment Fair:

  • Be dressed to make a favorable impression with potential employers.
  • Bring 6-8 copies of your resume. If you don’t have a resume, check out this website or meet with a career counselor. Resumes are not required, but they make a good impression.
  • Be prepared to know if you have a Work-Study Award or not. If you aren’t sure, call or stop by the Merrill Center (207-778-7100).
  • Bring a copy of your schedule with you or write down the times when you are available to work.
  • Prepare for a busy event. If you don’t like crowds, time your arrival to occur between 12:15 to 1:00.
  • Review the list of employers (see below) and make a plan to talk with several.
  • Practice introducing yourself. Hi, my name is Josh. I’m a first year student and I’m looking for a job on campus. What kinds of positions do you have available?
  • If you want to apply for a job, fill out the application and return it to the employer soon.
  • Visit the Career Services page for information about interviewing.
