-Prospective employees will have the opportunity to meet with representatives of small, medium or large companies as well as startups and consulting firms. They will have a chance to get to know the leaders within Armenia’s job market and make an informed choice.

Preparing for the LUYS Career Fair

Your CV is your own personal advertisement. The purpose is to illustrate your knowledge, skills, and abilities and impress potential employers.

Research Employers

Review the list of organizations that will be attending the fair on the website. Use the information provided by the employer and visit the organization's website.

Update CV

Develop a CV that reflects your most current accomplishments, skills, and experiences. Print an adequate number of copies of your CV. If you are considering positions in a few areas, you may need more than one version of your CV.

Practice Introducing Yourself

Prepare a 20 to 30 second introduction to use with employers. For example, "Hello. I'm (your name), a junior in Communication Studies and Marketing. I'm looking for an internship related to marketing for next summer. I read on your website that (name of company) has an internship program in your corporate marketing department, and I would really like to learn more about this program."

Consider Dress Code

Consider how you will dress. If you are exploring job opportunities, you should dress in professional attire.
