Name Tag Recommendations for Job Seekers @ Cleared Job Fairs
I can’t tell you how many times I find myself letting cleared job seekers attending our Cleared Job Fairs know that their name badge is not strategically placed on their person.
Name badge don’t:
Do *NOT* place your name badge on the edge of your blazer or jacket or on any part of your mid-torso
Examples of how NOT to wear your name badge are demonstrated below:
And now for the CORRECT WAY to display your name badge at a Cleared Job Fair, or any job fair in general…
THIS IS THE CORRECT WAY TO DISPLAY YOUR NAME, JOB SEEKERS:
My *strong* recommendation is that when attending a job fair, job seekers should put their name badges on their upper left hand side. This way, when a job seeker shakes a recruiters hand and introduces themselves, it allows the recruiter to also see the job seeker’s name on the badge for reinforcement.
At a job fair, recruiters are talking to many candidates per hour so to make yourself stand out that much more, little things like the placement of a name badge helps the recruiter to make a better connection.
Good luck with that cleared job search!!This entry was posted on Thursday, April 08, 2010 5:37 pm
