Former ER Medical Scribe, Scribe Ambassador, and Certified Trainer Scribe at PhysAssist Scribes, Inc.
over 2 years ago
From someone who attended career fairs for PhysAssist Scribes, Inc., my best advice would be to come prepared. Dress professionally, bring a copy of your resume, research the job position prior, and if available, submit an application before the career fair. That way, the recruiter can follow up on your application same-day without having to wait for you to apply. Feel free to have some questions ready as well, such as questions about the job itself, or even the hiring and training process. If you get their contact information, send a follow up email within 48 hours thanking to reintroduce yourself, remind the recruiter that you already submit an application, and politely thank them for their time.

When approaching a recruiter at a career fair, introduce yourself and ask about the position. It is important to tell them your major or career plans (hopefully in the medical field) for them to know whether or not you are a good fit for this job.
