Launch your career in retail

Meet recruiters from retail’s most exciting brands during the NRF Foundation Student Program Career Fair.  

 

How to Rock the Career Fair

1. Be prepared

Bring copies of your resume and research the attending companies that you're interested in.

2. Dress to impress

A first impression means everthing! Look your best by dressing in professional attire.

3. Practice makes perfect

Have a 20-30 second introduction memorized that describes what value you can bring to an employer. Be sure to have questions ready in advance as well. You'll want to present your best, confident self to a potential employer.

4. Follow up with your new contacts

Personally follow up with the contacts you make. The rule of thumb is to send them an email within 24 hours of when you met them.
