Career: ECF Tip #9: Do your research


One of the worst things you can do is ask a recruiter “What does your company do?” You’ve just wasted your time and probably lost the recruiter’s interest. Before you go to the fair, research the employers that will be there. If you are knowledgeable about the company, you can have a deeper conversation with the recruiter AND impress them with your interest the research you’ve done.

The iSchool is sponsoring an Employer Research Session, February 2, 4-6 pm, MGH 066. Bring your laptops and enjoy some pizza while you search for information on the employers attending the career fair.

A list of the employers scheduled to be at fair can be found here.
