September 8 Job Fair | Questions to Ask in 2021

The Development Office at Maranatha Baptist University will be hosting a Job Fair on September 8, 2021. You will have access to community businesses from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Dining Complex Foyer.

Although the businesses will be on campus, searching for the right job can be hard.  

You have to figure out so many things: what job you would like, if the commute is worth it, what hours you can work, and how to create a decent resume. You then have the interviews to look forward to and after that training. It all seems overwhelming.  

But, it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. The best way you can be prepared to enter the job-searching world is by asking the right questions.  

A majority of employers and job fair representatives will ask you if you have any questions about their company. Don’t be caught off guard; this is a great opportunity for you to know the job, the employees, and the work environment. And instead of just asking why you should apply, dive in deeper with questions that will benefit you.  

 Here are some questions you should ask a potential employer:  

  • What will a typical day of work look like?  
  • How should I communicate with you after the interview?  
  • What types of skills do I need to bring to the job?  
  • Can you show me an example of what I will be doing?  
  • How will I be trained?  
  • Will this job require me to buy my own uniform?  
  • Who will I report to directly?  
  • What is the work environment like?  
  • Do you need me to answer any more questions for you?  

There are so many more questions you can ask when applying for a job. Whether you are at a job fair or are talking directly to the boss, you go prepared with a list of questions that will leave a lasting impression on the company.  

Don’t be afraid to ask, what questions should I ask? That shows the employer that you are ready to take that next step and land that job. You can also check out any website that provides questions for you to take for yourself, like this one here 

 So, get to work and create a list of questions. You will be setting yourself up for success.
