Follow up after Career Day Take notes during Career Day to keep things straight. Send a thank you note or email. Follow up regarding a specific position that youre interested in/applied for. Develop a tracking system to stay organized. Be patient, it may be months before you get a call back. How the interview schedule is determined Preferences of students and recruiters are put into a mathematical model that makes a logical match.

Recruiters have access to resumes on a secure website. Recruiters rank candidates based on the resume. Recruiters submit position descriptions. Students receive position descriptions. Students rank companies according to preference based on job description (if provided) or company profile, #1 being best.

Ranking spreadsheet will be provided to students. Email to [email protected] by Oct. 13. Rank every company. (Ex. If unable to relocate and it is required, rank that company last). I didnt get an interview with my first choice. Why not?

The interview schedule is based on the data received from students and recruiters. If you ranked a company as #1 and the company does not want to interview you, you will not get an interview. If you are not qualified (grad date, etc.), the company may decline an interview regardless of your preference. If you dont submit a preference the schedule will be completely random (not recommended). Scheduling & Last Minute Issues If you need to start late, leave early or have any time constraints, tell me by Oct. 13. Deadline to withdraw is Oct. 13. Dont be a no show.

You will receive your interview schedule the day before Career Day. Do not email me to ask when you will receive your schedule!! Your schedule is subject to change. You will receive a text or call if there is an opportunity for an additional interview. Be ready! Helpful Hints Make [email protected] a safe sender so messages dont get caught in junk mail. Check your email every day. When you send resume, rankings, or any other important information request a delivery receipt or expect a response from

me. If you dont get a response within 2 days check back to make sure your email was received. Research EVERY company

Prioritize and focus on your top companies. Start early and have a working knowledge of every company. Ask good questions. Company website, Linkedin, Google, Glassdoor Articles in Jax Business Journal, WSJ, annual reports, online articles, trade journals. Check Osprey Career Link for positions. Companies may not have open positions, but are there to create a talent pipeline. Dont blow off an interview no matter what! Informal interviews

Be prepared to make a good impression during the: Networking breakfast Lunch T&L Employer Expo Networking reception Ask for a business card, offer your resume, sell yourself. Dont be shy and give it your best shot! After Career Day Students are required to report Career Day results directly to [email protected] 2nd interviews, job offers and any offer accepted. Include salary information (confidential for tracking

purposes), job title, contact information. A tremendous amount of time and resources is invested in this program, but the only way to justify the program is to show the results and outcomes. T&L Career Day Committee If you would like to volunteer to help with the event please contact [email protected] This is a great way to network in a more informal atmosphere. And a great way to prove yourself in real time.
