Meet your future employer: 2019 fall career fair

Meet Your Future Employer: 2019 Fall Career Fair

All chefs get their start somewhere. This fall, meet your future employer and amp up your networking skills! ICC’s Career Fairs, held twice a year, allow current students & alumni to meet some of the most well-known restaurants and restaurant groups in NYC, coming specifically to ICC to meet YOU. From fine dining to fast casual, catering, bakeries and more, there is something for everyone and every career path!

But, before you head to career fair to show you’ve got the chops, check out these tips from our Career Services team to make the most of meeting employers!

  1. After you set up an appointment with Career Services to have your resume reviewed, be sure to print out at least 25 copies! While you might not hand them all out, there are plenty of employers to network with and it’s better to have too many than not enough.
  2. Do your homework on the companies & employers in attendance — that way, you can ask pertinent questions to the recruiter or chef, rather than asking a basic question like “What do you do at your company?”
  3. Appear alert & enthusiastic. Shake their hand, introduce yourself and say what program you are from. Remember: The most important quality an employer looks for is a great attitude!

Get the full list of tips, commonly asked questions and more by logging into your account and heading to the Career Fair section!
