Bustling, crowded, noisy, diverse, and competitive.
No, we’re not talking about NYC during rush hour 🚗🚦
We’re talking about job fairs.
And while they’re beneficial for finding job opportunities, networking, and company research, they can be overwhelming.
What’s the alternative?
This week we’ll show you how you can connect with recruiters without attending in-person job fairs.
We’ll use NYU as an example because they recently hosted a networking event.
First, search “Job Fair NYU recruiter” on LinkedIn and filter by posts.
You’ll see a bunch of posts from companies and recruiters that are planning to attend the fair.
Some of the posts also include email addresses and the names of the recruiters.
Next, you'll want to reach out to them.
Go to NetworkAI and craft a message to send them a connection request.
Easy and simple!
Try it out next time you hear about a job fair!
