Attending Job Fairs At Other Colleges

There are job fairs taking place nearly every day at colleges throughout the United States. Tap into this vast resource.

If you request permission, many colleges are willing to allow attendees from outside their college. For safety's sake, it is always best to check with the sponsoring organization, which is usually the Career Center for the college. If you are from a different geographical region and seeking to relocate to that particular area, most colleges are willing to accommodate your special request to attend. So if there is a job fair at another college, make sure you put it on your schedule. Don't limit yourself to your college alone—take advantage of all available resources.

For more information on how to take advantage of all the resources available through other colleges, see the Other Alma Mater Technique in Chapter 15.
