5.) Plan to Follow Up

Like a job interview, you should plan to send a follow-up note to the contacts you meet. It is a chance to help keep you top of mind, and it gives you an opportunity to reiterate why you have what they are looking for. Before ending each conversation, be sure to collect business cards from the people you speak with and take good notes, so you know how best to personalize the follow-up note. Approached the right way, job fairs can open many conversations and doors to job opportunities. Speaking of job fairs, be sure to register for the upcoming G.I. Jobs Virtual Career Expo, where you can chat one-on-one with recruiters looking to hire veterans. Registration is free, but seats are limited, so be sure to reserve your spot at the link below today!
