Are you a recruiter?
To follow up with a company representative after a job fair, consider these steps:
Send a Thank-You Email: Within 24-48 hours after the job fair, send a concise and polite thank-you email to the company representative you spoke with. Express your appreciation for their time and interest in your qualifications.
Personalise Your Message: Mention something specific from your conversation to jog their memory and show that you were engaged during the interaction.
Reiterate Your Interest: State your continued interest in the company and the specific role you discussed at the job fair.
Attach Your CV: Include your updated CV as an attachment to make it easy for them to review your qualifications.
Request Next Steps: Politely ask about the next steps in the hiring process, such as when you can expect to hear back or if there are any specific actions they'd like you to take.
LinkedIn Connection: If you haven't already connected on LinkedIn, consider sending a connection request with a personalised message.
Be Patient: Give the company representative some time to respond. They may have a high volume of emails to go through after the job fair.
Follow Up Again (if necessary): If you don't receive a response after a reasonable amount of time, consider sending a polite follow-up email to reiterate your interest.
Remember to maintain a professional and courteous tone in your communication, and keep your follow-up concise and to the point. Following up shows your enthusiasm for the position and your proactive approach to the job search.
