After the Career Fair: How To Write Follow-Up Emails That Make You Unforgettable

Crafting a follow-up email might only take you a few minutes. But it could very well be the reason you get called for a job interview!

After the career fair, make it a point to send emails to the recruiters you spoke with. Especially when the conversation is still fresh on your minds (and theirs).

What to include in your follow-up message:

  • Thank the recruiter for speaking with you
  • Insert unique details of the conversation you had with the recruiter (personalize it as best as you can!)
  • Reiterate your interest in the company and the role that caught your attention and express how you would be a good fit. (If there are any strengths or skills you didn’t get to mention at the career fair, you can include them in this email!)
  • Reattach your resume/links to your work samples

To make it easier for you, you can use the following sample message as a guide:
