Career Professionalism

So, you are planning to go to the Fall Career Fair (September 24, noon-6pm, SDC). What do you need to prepare? What should you expect?

  • Dress nicely. You do not need a suit; a nice shirt/blouse and slacks will do.
  • Go prepared to tell them what you can do for them and why you are interested in working with their company.
  • Prepare a resume.
  • Publish your resume on HuskyJOBS and bring paper copies with you.

Present yourself well. Everyone knows that companies will look at resumes and transcripts. Other things to consider:

  • If you are not using your Michigan Tech e-mail address, be sure your personal e-mail address is professional.
  • Listen to your phone message to be sure that it is professional.
  • Google yourself and be aware of what information is on your Facebook account.

For events that can help you get ready for the Career Fair, see the Career Services calendar.


Fall Career Fair: September 24, noon-6pm, SDC

Fall Career Fair 2013 is where students and companies can meet to discuss potential job opportunities including summer internships, co-ops, and full-time employment. It is a great chance for first-year students to find summer employment which can help in making career decisions. A Job Fair Guidebook will be handed out at the Career Fair and will be available on-line. The guidebook provides a brief description of each company attending the Career Day (see details on the web at www.career.mtu.edu). A shuttle will be provided to transport students to and from the SDC; campus pick-up is at the MUB.
