Tips + Tools

  • Before the event: Contact Financial Aid to find out if you are eligible for Federal Work Study
  • Students can sign up for multiple interviews with various offices/departments

1. Arrive on time.

The event starts at 10:30. You will have time to prepare yourself and look through the list of departments looking for student labor.

2. Bring copies of your resume if you have one.

A polished resume is appreciated by your future employer.  If you need help preparing go to Career Development & Experiential Learning Center – Norwalk Community College.

3. Prepare for Conversation.

Because there are other students who will want to meet with employers, your meetings and conversations will be very short. Think “Speed Dating”. Prepare a personal pitch that talks about your work experience and unique skills that you will bring to the department.

4. Know your class schedule.

On-campus jobs offer flexibility, however, there are office hours that may need coverage.  Being able to speak to your availability, will help the hiring process along.

5. Dress Professionally.

Most schools and jobs fairs recommend that students and attendees dress in “smart” casual or business casual attire.

6. Ask Employers Questions.

When you meet with hiring managers come prepared to ask them several questions. You can ask about the type of work you would do and if you need any special technical skills. Asking questions and coming prepared shows that you are genuinely interested in working there.

7. Be Attentive and Courteous During Interviews.

Your body language speaks volumes about your interest in the job and being a part of their team.
