So today was my very first job fair.....it did not go so well :(
There was over 95 school districts represented and probably 100s of people there, I didn't feel like I stood out at all. Only talking to principals for a few minutes basically trying to sell yourself was definitely not me! I feel like one-on-one interviews would be much more my style. If anyone has job fair tips, I NEED THEM!!! I'm thinking just because this is the biggest one I'll attend maybe that's why I feel a little defeated (well that's what I tell myself anyway ;)
Silver Lining: The one good thing about the fair was definitely meeting people. I can at least say that I have met many of the principals if I do end up getting an interview later. This have prepared me for what I need to do next time as well, goodness I have a lot to work on!
I've been working on improving my resume (!!) and Andrea over at Cheers to School had some tips today even that I can put into use very soon on professional development.
What is your number 1 tip for being interviewed or job fairs?
Sorry for the short post, I'm wiped out mentally from this fair and need to catch some sleep before school tomorrow!
