Are you a recent graduate, an alumni or a student who is still looking for a full-time job or internship? Are you feeling anxious about your future? Please don’t! The Just in Time Fair is here to help you. This job fair is designed exclusively for the DePaul community. At the fair, you will find recruiters from a wide range of industries who are seeking qualified candidates of all majors and experience levels to fill job, internship, and volunteer opportunities.

For your convenience, the fair is deliberately following commencement weekend, in the hopes of connecting DePaul candidates to immediate opportunities!

When it comes to attending a job fair, my one piece of advice is to prepare. Being prepared will better your chances of walking out with a new connection, an interview, or even a job offer.

Follow these simple steps to get job fair ready:

Revise Your Resume: Go and see your career advisor or a peer advisor at the Career Center to review your resume and provide feedback.

Do Your Research: Research the companies that interest you and have specific questions ready for each. This will help you engage the representatives at the fair and express your knowledge of their companies.

Keep Calm & Practice: Before entering the fair, stop by the ASK Oasis table to…

  1. Relax and prepare for the fair
  2. Practice your introduction and pitch
  3. Get a final resume review
