- For companies that you are specifically interested in and have spent time talking to, ask the rep for a business card and ask if you can connect with them via LinkedIn/email. Then send them a request as soon as possible after the fair, referencing your meeting and keep in touch with them
- Do not use a fair as an excuse to just go around picking up free stuff
- Make notes as soon as possible after you’ve spoken to someone, so you can record key points/impressions/contacts while they are fresh in your mind
- If you need any help or advice call in to speak to one of the Careers team
