Experts advise those who attend a job fair to wear professional interview attire to make a good first impression, introduce themselves with a strong handshake and prepare an introductory pitch as to why they are the perfect candidate for the job (emphasizing experience and accomplishments).
Making a positive first impression will greatly increase the likelihood of hearing back from potential employers.
