Following Up After FCD

The career fair is just the beginning. Make sure to connect after the fair to keep the job search moving.

  • Apply online if needed
    Employers will ask you to apply formally. Do this in a timely manner and follow the instructions given to you by the recruiter.

  • Say thanks
    Follow-up and thank recruiters that you connected with. Send a very polite email and note details from your conversations to show your interest.

  • Connect digitally
    Use LinkedIn to grow your network by connecting with recruiters. Reach out to those you talked to and avoid sending random requests to too many people. Make sure your profile is up-to-date and highlights your experience.
