Following Up with Organizations

Attending Fall Education Career Day is just the beginning of the application process. Make sure to follow through and show initiative to organizations you are interested in.

  • Jot down notes
    Write down key information from your conversations with recruiters. Note what they are looking for in candidates, what next steps are in the application process, and more. Don't wait or you may forget something.
  • Organize contact information
    Store contact information in a safe place for later use. Career Services cannot provide this for you after the fair.
  • Send a thank you note
    Touch base with the recruiter by sending a thank you note after meeting with them. Use the notes you took to highlight conversation points.
  • Apply online if needed
    Most organizations ask that you formally apply online after meeting face-to-face. Make sure to do this in a timely manner.
