Tips for the Job + Internship Fair

  • Let students know you are coming to the Job + Internship Fair ahead of time. Search, message and invite students to come visit your table at the fair, all right in Bullseye powered by Handshake. Learn more about sending students a message.
  • Bring swag! Something that students can see, touch or interact with. That's always an attention grabber.
  • Stand out. Be a walking, talking billboard for your organization. Bring table cloths, banners, wear matching shirts and again, more swag. Students want to know who you are and be able to easily see you from across the room.
  • Collect resumes or at least have a way to collect contact information at the fair, instead of “Thanks for coming! Now apply online.” Students want to feel accomplished after leaving your booth, not disappointed that they could have applied online in their room. It’s just one more reason why they will feel excited to see you.
  • Stay until the end. We know that you might need to catch a plane or a train, but please don't leave early. You might be missing the perfect candidate because they decided to come after class instead of skipping it.

Plus+ Be social. Post, tweet or share, telling #UBuffalo students you're coming to @UBuffalo for the Job + Internship Fair. And don’t forget to tag and follow UB Career Services!

Post Your Job or Internship

If you have an open position, post it on Bullseye powered by Handshake so that all UB students can view it.
