Networking events, like career fairs, are excellent opportunities to connect with professionals and gain exposure for your job or internship search. Yet, knowing what to say at these events can feel intimidating. You can prepare questions before the event to help you feel confident and maximize the opportunity.
Think about the different aspects of the company or job. Craft questions that demonstrate your knowledge and interest in the role or organization while acquiring insight to help you decide whether you want to pursue their potential career or internship opportunities. Remember to communicate in a way that helps make a connection and build rapport.
