  1. Note the names of any contacts you make on the day.
  2. Think about your strengths and skills and be able to tell an employer what you have to offer.
  3. Consider what questions you want to ask them: What vacancies do they have? What are their requirements? What training opportunities do they provide?
  4. Be sure to contact the less well-known organisations as they often have very challenging opportunities to offer.
