On Wednesday, October 2, UMKC will host their annual Career Expo. This year’s event will be located in the Swinney Rec Center and run from 10:00 am to 2:30 pm. This is an opportunity for you to make connections with numerous local, regional and national employers from a variety of career fields. Dress sharp and bring plenty of resumes.
To prepare for this event, have your elevator speech ready. The 45 second intro that you use when an employer asks, “Tell me about yourself and what are you seeking?” Here is a way to organize your thoughts and keep it simple. Mention what you have done, where you are at now and what you are seeking to start your career. This will allow you to tell your story, start the conversation and make that positive first impression.
