Attend the CF wearing appropriate attire. Appropriate attire is defined as “business casual” or “business professional”. Not only is “business casual” or “business professional” attire required for this assignment, you will not be admitted to the CF unless you’re dressed appropriately. You will also need your ISU student ID in order to be admitted to the CF. Definitions and specific examples of these styles of dress are provided on pages two and three of this document.
Talk with at least three employer representatives to inquire about things such as:
Types of positions they have available
Skills/qualities they’re looking for in candidates
Other items related to your own personal interests
By Wednesday, October 1 turn in (during class) a two to three page paper outlining your CF experience. The paper must answer the following questions:
Which employers did you talk with? (company names and recruiter names)
What did you learn from these employers?
In general, how has your participation at the CF impacted your career development? (You may want to mention your overall impression of the CF, career options you’ve decided to pursue, what surprised you about the CF, etc.)
The paper must be typewritten. Other requirements for the paper are that it must be:
Size 12 font
Pages must be stapled
Your grammar and the neatness of your paper will be taken into consideration when determining the number of points you will earn on this assignment. Again, your paper must be typed. It will only be accepted in hard copy format in class on or before the beginning of the class session on October 1.
