The WNY Diversity Job Fair is Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Buffalo Convention Center.  

So whether you are looking for a job or looking to replace the one you have, here are some tips to help get you hired:

  • Know what employers will be there and make an "A" list and "B" list.
  • Bring plenty of copies of your resume. You may even need different versions, depending on what jobs you are applying for.
  • Prepare a 20-30-second intro for yourself for employers.
  • Prepare questions in advance for the employers but DON'T ask simple question or questions about salary. Not the place.
  • Have a good handshake and make good eye contact.
  • Prepare well -- do research!
  • Arrive early. Lines could be long. You don't want to miss out on your "A" selections.
  • Collect business cards.

Good luck on your search!
