Questpro Managers Meredith Haaker and Taylor Jones traveled to Chicago this month to mingle with students from all over the country during the annual GIS International Conference. They met some fantastic students and were able to speak with Chapter Advisers, University Faculty, and GIS Alumni during the week. Here are a few of their top tips for a successful career fair or conference!
1.) Do a little research before to see what companies will be there. Approach every booth you can, even if you are familiar with the company. Insurance is a small world, and you never know who you may meet or who has connections with your dream job.
2.) Take charge of the conversation! Approach the booth with confidence and your “elevator pitch”.
