Career Fairs

 

Throughout the year, we host career fairs, career days, and opportunity expos on the UM campus to bring together employers and students. These recruiting events provide employers the opportunity to increase their visibility, disseminate information, and collect resumes from potential applicants. Students have the benefit of meeting prominent employers and gathering valuable information about fulltime, part time, and internship opportunities. We invite you to join us in creating these exciting networking opportunities and encourage you to participate in our next event.

Information Table Tips

 

The UM Career Development Center encourages employers and representatives to take full advantage of their Information Table as an on-campus recruiting opportunity. We support any promotional and public relations activities conducted by our visiting recruiters in their effort to provide employment opportunities to UM students.

For your Information Table efforts to be effective, we recommend a more active, rather than passive, approach. Feel free to engage the students and interact with them.

 

Give students who approach your Information Table a friendly greeting and welcome their questions. Be sure that your body language is friendly. Don't stand there with your arms crossed over your chest, for instance. Chat with visitors, and find out what aspect of your business they're most interested in. Be prepared to offer specific answers to their questions. The trick is to draw them in without intimidating or overwhelming them. Get out from behind your table and get off your phone/computer. Sometimes, exhibitors sit behind their tables while attendees stand looking down at them. Get up and engage.

Job Postings

 

The UM Career Development Center offers employers the opportunity to advertise employment and internship opportunities on-line, on our campus and on our website. The UM Career Development Center will post job announcements in behalf of employers who meet certain requirements.

 

Job announcements must include the following information: Name of organization, job title, location, job description, qualifications, and contact information (including contact person, address, telephone number, e-mail address).  Optional information may include: company information, salary, benefits, special circumstances, application instructions.

 

The UM Career Development Center does not post blind ads, in which the company or organization is not identified.

On-line job posting is reserved for fulltime, permanent professional positions and internships offered by official, legitimate employers representing formal businesses and organizations.

Information Table Tips

 

Feel free to add persuasive and eye-catching elements to your table area to build excitement and enhance your message.

 

Make sure you have plenty of promotional literature, brochures, and business cards to give out. Distributing promotional items, gifts, giveaways, and prizes is usually very effective in drawing interest. Offering snacks is also a big crowd pleaser.


Signage is of particular importance. It is certainly recommended that recruiters prominently display their company name and logo.  Colorful graphics and bright images are very effective.

 

We further recommend to use of secondary signage to draw attention to special features that might inspire additional interest.

For example, if the benefits of your program or product are not immediately obvious, it could be very effective to post a sign on your table that says “Great Entry-Level Job” or “Excellent Growth Potential” or “Tuition Reimbursement” or “Great Salary and Benefits Package.”

Another example of helpful secondary signage might include signs that target the intended audience: “Attention: Science Majors” or “Seeking History Majors” or “Opportunities for English Majors” or “Open to All Majors.”

 

Use of technology can be helpful in communicating your brand.  Video displays, slideshows, and other media typically attract attention.  Be careful with loud music.
