A revolutionary approach to the traditional career fair

We will target organizations that are...

  • Researching solutions to solve water shortages or provide better quality drinking water.
  • Looking for better ways to communicate important public health information to lower-socioeconomic populations.
  • Practicing "Impact Investing" to produce healthy returns for investors while improving the quality of life of the communities in which you operate.
  • Feeding the world in a more innovative way

…or finding other ways of making the world a better place!

Forget about the usual focus on job descriptions. Don't expect a traditional meet-and-greet. Instead, M.Y.M. offers you the opportunity for employers to transform their table into an Innovation Station where they can:

  • Demo a Design
  • Engage with an Experiment
  • Showcase a Solution

How to Prepare:

  • View preparation resources on Chatter/DUST under the “Careers” link
  • Attend a career fair prep workshop

Things to Consider:

  • Is your resume ready and do you have multiple copies made?
  • Do you have your “Elevator Pitch” or 30-second “Commercial” ready?  Be prepared to sell your interest in the organization/position and be able to tell how you can add value
  • Are you ready to Dress for Success??  (e.g., suit or business smart outfit)
  • Don’t forget to review the list of employers who are attending (found on Handshake) and do some research
  • Are you ready with questions to ask the recruiters?  Make sure to have a few ready to go
  • Organize yourself the night before
