Job Fair And Career Tips For Tampa Job Seekers

1. Want to get promoted? Bring solutions to your business meetings. Not more problems.

2. Guy likely not to be promoted: "I can not come in early this week."

3. Follow up with recruiters after the job fair. The problem with the “sit, wait, and hope strategy” most job seekers are using is that they will continue to sit, wait, and hope until the job was filled by someone else. When you are at the job fair be sure to collect as much information as you can about the company, job, and recruiter that you spoke to. Follow up the next day on conversations you had and ask for an interview. Don't let your competition snatch those jobs away from you while you sit waiting for the phone to ring.

4. Gal likely to be promoted: "I talked to that customer and got a resolution for him."

5. You may find opportunities you didn't even think of at the job fair. One of the benefits of a job fair is that you will have a chance to interact with recruiters from other companies you may know nothing about. Taking some time to talk to these representatives will give you a chance to learn more about opportunities they offer that you may have missed or not considered in your job search.

Be A Cyber-Suckup For Job Fair Success

"Flattery will get you everywhere." Mae West

Many career coaches will tell you that before you approach a hiring manager at any of the Tampa based job fairs listed on this page you should have done enough homework in order to be knowledgeable about what’s happening in the company. This not only gives you relevant talking points, but demonstrates that you have initiative and work ethic.

Considering that most job seekers at a career fair will not have taken the time to learn about the companies in attendance, this exercise of researching the companies you want to work for will set you apart from everyone else. However, if you want to the one candidate to truly stand out here is a strategy for using social media in advance of the job fair or interview.

Employers are checking YOU out online.
Yes, you want to check out all the Tampa employers online before the job fair, but remember they will also be checking YOU out. 39% of employers admit they are using social media recruiting as part of the screening process for potential employees. Sure, everyone is smiling and shaking hands at the job fair, but employers have caught on that your online presence is a window into your real personality.

Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter....they make it so easy to learn about the real you. So if employers make your online presence part of the decision making process, why don't you make their online presence part of the job search process as well? Here is how some employees have boosted their career success using social media and how you can apply their tactics at any job fair in Tampa.

Why employees suck up online.
In her podcast episode "Social networks upend office etiquette" Lucy Kellaway from the Financial Times talks about employees who use social media to flatter their employer with online attention. She referred to this behavior as being a "cyber suck up". Basically, you immerse yourself in your employer's online world and interact with it enough so that the company can't help but recognize you as a strong supporter who bleeds the company's colors. The conclusion the cyber suck up hopes for is being recognized as a superior team player.

Could this practice also benefit a job seeker in Tampa?
First of all, how does one virtually suck up anyway? 10 days before a job fair Katie reviewed a list of employers who would be attending, and friended the company she wished to work for. She then followed them on Twitter and LinkedIn, as well. She subscribed to their newsletter and YouTube channel. She wrote a positive online review about her experience in one of their stores. She retweeted, commented, and "liked" several times. She downloaded their podcasts. She posted a picture of herself shopping at one of the company's locations.

All of a sudden you are just another part of the company team.
Katie was in virtual contact with the company's social media team throughout the week before the job fair. They tweeted her back. They sent cyber thank yous. At the job fair, Katie talked to the hiring manager about her new cyber friends, who happened to be real-life friends of the hiring manager in Tampa. Katie was quickly invited to interview and was eventually hired. Why wouldn't she be? She was practically part of the company's team already.

Now you may think this is an underhanded way of working your way into the good graces of a company. However, immersing yourself in the company's online presence is not only a fantastic way to learn a lot about the company, but it is an excellent way to meet company employees you wouldn't have had access to otherwise.

Whether you call it cyber sucking up or due diligence, making yourself part of the company's online conversation is a great way to make yourself part of their team and forge a connection to the company before you attend the job fair and meet the hiring managers. Find a Tampa job fair now!

Beefing Up Your Resume
An excellent way to beef up your resume, as well as, your professional network is volunteering your time. Of course, volunteering is an excellent way to give back to your community, and it can be personally rewarding. However, volunteerism is also an excellent way to make finding a new job much easier. How? You could be learning new skills, adding relevant experience to your resume, and meeting new people who can may be able to assist you in finding a new job. Be strategic about selecting where you will volunteer your time. Yes, volunteer at an organization you are passionate about, but find opportunities that let you meet new people and enhance / learn new job skills.
