Nailing Your Career Fair Journey as an Expat Partner in Paris

🌟 Career fairs can be a great way to start your job search in Paris, especially if you are an expat partner. The Salon Paris pour l'emploi 2023, one of the largest career fairs in Paris and France, is coming up in November. In this blog post, we will provide tips on how to prepare for a career fair as an expat partner, so that you can make the most of this valuable event to advance your career and feel at home in France. 💼🌆

🎯Choose the right career fairs

There are many different career fairs held in Paris throughout the year. While some are large and general, others are more focused on specific industries or demographics. It is important to choose fairs that are relevant to your skills, experience, and career goals. A focused fair filters the companies and sectors for you. Those companies also know what they are looking for at the fair.🎯

Absolutely Talented is a unique career fair in Paris, organized by Absolutely French exclusively for expat partners. Participating companies are looking for talent with solid overseas experience and international exposure. It is the perfect opportunity for expat partners to explore professional opportunities in France and make the most of their experiences during their expatriation.🌍🌆

Research the Companies and Attendees

Before the career fair, it's crucial to research the companies and attendees that will be present. Visit the Absolutely Talented website and review the list of participating organizations. This will help you identify which companies align with your career goals and interests. Make a shortlist of companies you want to target and learn about their culture, values, and the opportunities they offer. 📚🔍

Update Your Resume and LinkedIn Profile

Ensure your resume is up to date, highlighting your skills, experiences, and achievements. Tailor your resume to the positions you are interested in. Additionally, refresh your LinkedIn profile to reflect your professional growth. Make sure to add a professional profile picture and a compelling summary that showcases your aspirations and accomplishments. 📄🔗 For more information about linkedIn profile refer our Article : Why should I be on LinkedIn?

Prepare Your Elevator Pitch

Craft a concise and compelling elevator pitch that introduces yourself and your career objectives. Be ready to describe your skills, experience, and what makes you unique. Practice your pitch so that it comes across as confident and genuine. 🗣️🚀

Dress Professionally

First impressions matter, and dressing professionally is essential when attending a career fair. Choose an outfit that aligns with the industry you're targeting, and ensure it's clean and well-fitted. Dressing the part will help you stand out and project confidence. 👔👠

Bring Plenty of Business Cards

Prepare a stack of business cards with your contact information, including your name, email, and phone number. Handing out business cards is an effective way to stay connected with potential employers and new contacts you meet during the fair. 📇🤝

Prepare Questions

Don't be shy about asking questions. Prepare thoughtful questions for the representatives of the companies you're interested in. This shows your genuine interest and helps you gather more information to determine if the company is a good fit for you. 🤔❓

Network with an Open Mind

Approach the career fair with an open mind. While it's great to have a target list of companies, don't hesitate to explore opportunities that may not have been on your radar. Networking can lead to unexpected and exciting prospects. 🌐🌈

Follow Up After the Fair

After the career fair, be sure to follow up with the contacts you made. Send thank-you emails to the recruiters and professionals you met, expressing your interest in their company and the positions discussed. This post-fair communication can make a lasting impression. 📧🙏
