There are major benefits for attending a job fair as a freshman in college. The most important thing you want to do at a job fair is to bring copies of your updated resume and network with everyone. The broader your network the better the chances are that you will be able to gain an opportunity through that person. You may be able to start small with maybe a possible intership then from that experience many doors can open for you once you graduate college.

Good question! I would encourage you to go to the job fair for a couple of reasons. If you know what you are going to school for, it is a great way to gather information with companies in that particular field so you have a real idea of what to expect after school. This is also a good way to look for internships. If you are not sure what you want to major in, ask all the questions you can with every company that catch your interest. Hope this helps!

Hey Jaxon! Job fairs are a great way to interact with several different types of businesses, especially if you are not sure what career you have in mind. I went to a job fair during my freshman year in college as well. It was intimidating but rewarding. Go to the fair with an open mind and your imagination. You are entering the workforce is such an exciting time in technology and innovation. Good luck!!

Attending college fairs are the most beneficial ways to further help in figuring out what type of College/University a student plans to attend. It is the best way to get quick information directly from those whom are sponsering the schools so as to achieve the best a better understanding of what that school offers. Where else can you go where there are vast amounts of colleges/universities in one location giving you the resources to help choose where you want to go and what you may want to do for your future
