Virtual job fairs--some tips

Katie Bascuas, Association News, writes about virtual job fairs. These are a way to interact with employers without leaving home or taking off work.

If you decided to log on to one, see which companies or organizations will be there--do your homework. Put your resume on the fair's website.

Review your online "self" for old or unwanted info--companies will check.

Do not wear jammies--the employer may want to switch to a video call.

ASAE CareerHQ's Virtual Career Fair is being held on Nov 5, 2014.

ASAE is American Society of Association Executives. I was an association exec for 16 yrs--it's an interesting, specialized world. I still miss it sometimes--although dinos roamed then.

Check it out.
