· Dress for an interview. First impressions at the job fairs in Virginia are important. Show the employers that you are serious about your job search. It is best to wear a suit to a job fair, - unless you are looking for a job that would require you to dress professionally at work. NEVER WEAR jeans, t-shirts, baseball caps, headphones ect. If you cannot wear a suit to the job fair, your best alternative is business casual. Nice slacks and a collared shirt for men and nice slacks or a skirt and a blouse for women. Make sure your clothes are clean and pressed. Don’t wear excessive jewelry or clothing that is too short or revealing.

· Spend time with each employer. Don''t just hand a resume to the hiring manager and go to the next employer. Put in some time and effort into getting additional information about the hiring company and try to make a good an impression. Don’t just try to see how many resumes you can give to employers in the least amount of time - it is VERY IMPORTANT to make a connection with the hiring manager and find some good job opportunities. It is also important to know when to approach each employer. Try to avoid approaching employers when they are crowded by a large group of job seekers, find an employer that is less busy. Trying to make a connection with an employer that is very busy at the job fair makes it harder for the employer to answer your individual questions, and they are far less likely to remember you.

· Use your research to your advantage. You should feel more confident and knowledgeable because you do your homework, prior the Job Fair in Virginia. Because you have done your research prior to the job fair, you won''t have to ask the question, what does your company do? Instead you can start the conversation with “I am familiar with your company and I really would like to be involved with your line of products and services”. Then give them an example of one of the products or services you know about. You will have a real advantage if you can tell employers how your skills match what they are looking for. Employers look to hire job seekers who show an interest in their company.

· A firm handshake and maintaining eye contact. Show the employer how serious you are. Greet each employer with a firm handshake, and be certain to maintain eye contact throughout the conversation.

· After the Job Fairs in Virginia:

· Follow up with a thank you email. Experts agree that follow-up is a crucial part of attending a job fair Virginia, VA.
