12 Questions to Ask Employers at Career Fairs to Discover Your Dream Workplace Fast

Career fairs are such a fun and exciting way to get a sneak peek into potential workplaces and job opportunities.

Not only is it a chance to impress hiring managers, but it’s also an opportunity for you to gather information and make informed decisions about your future career.

We know that career fairs can be a bit overwhelming (especially if it’s your first time), but don’t worry! To make the most of your time and get the information you need, it’s a good idea to plan ahead and think about what you want to know.

Do you want to know what your potential team members are like? Or maybe you’re curious about opportunities for career growth?

To help you out, we put together a list of questions you can ask at the career fair. You don’t have to ask them all – the chances are you won’t even have the time to. So pick 3 to 5 of the most important questions to ask, and you’ll be ready to rock it!
