- After meeting a company recruiter at a career fair, ask for their business card or contact information so that you can send them a "Thank You" e-mail with an electronic copy of your resume and a few lines about why you are interested in working for their company or expand on a topic that you discussed with the recruiter.
- Talk to you local career services center and see when that company may be interviewing on campus and how you could get on that roster.
- Find out if any of your friends, fellow students, advisers, or professors have worked with the company. They may be able to give you an employee's contact information.
- Check your campus' or a nearby campus' events calendar to see if the company is hosting any upcoming information sessions or networking events.
- Check the company roster on upcoming career fairs in your area. If you are a member of a professional organization that hosts a career fair, also check those company rosters. Organizations like the Society of Women Engineers, American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and the Engineering Society of Detroit (just to name a few) have annual career fairs.
Hopefully all this information will assist you in becoming a well-informed, uber-prepared online applicant! If you have any additional questions, please shoot me an e-mail at SpartanJobSeeker@gmail.com.
