Tips for Success


  • Ensure the positions you are promoting are posted on SpartaJobs prior to your event, as students will look there first for your opportunities.
  • Share information that students will not find on the internet such as what it is like to work at your organization, opportunities for growth, resume tips, and what to expect during the interview or hiring process. Discuss current opportunities and the experience of working there to increase interest in your organization.
  • Prepare to discuss opportunities and answer questions, as students want to learn about specific positions available in your organization.
  • Expect that students will come prepared with their resume and want to speak with you one-on-one and ask questions.
  • Most importantly, send positive, interactive, and friendly representatives to meet and greet our students.
