I hope you’re doing well! I hope that you all received great information about the different companies that attended the Career Expo. The Expo is a hiring event where recruiters talk to students who express interest in their companies. A lot of students attend info sessions to prepare themselves and expand their knowledge about the companies before they attend the actual Expo. I talked to a lot of companies for potential employment. Some of the big ones were United Airlines, Naval Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC), Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), Kellstroom Aerospace, and GA. I even ended up getting a few interviews so I am very hopeful to get a job once I graduate. I also got a great opportunity to take a professional photo during the expo.
I think it is very important to talk to all these different employers during the Expo. But a lot of students forget to send them a “thank-you” email after the event. If you haven’t done so yet, I would highly suggest emailing the employers you got a chance to talk to, by the end of this week. It shows employers of that company that you are very interested in working for them, and helps establish a great relationship. I would also suggest following them on Linked-In and establishing that professional network with them. If you need any help with writing up a “thank-you” email, please feel free to stop by Career Services and they will be more than willing to help you!
Until next time,
