Some tips from JobTiger Team:

1. Preparation:
  • Check out the participating companies in advance and mark those you are interested in;
  • Make a list of employers you want to talk with and sort them by priority to avoid missing the most important among them due to a lack of time;
  • Investigate each company you want to meet. Write down a few key sentences about them, so you could take a quick look at that information before going to the companys stand.

2. Documents required:
  • Bring your CVs and cover letters with you it's recommended to have more of them, written in Bulgarian and English. You may also bring some photos.
  • The number of CVs to bring depends on the number of companies you are interested in. However, having some extra CVs is recommended.
  • If you have different versions of your CVs, then prepare the respective cover letters too. When writing the cover letter do not copy the text directly from JobTiger employers are well acquainted with those examples and using them will not attract their attention to you.

3. Dress:
If you wonder what to wear when visiting the forum, the simplest choice is a suit. You should dress professionally, like the way you would be dressed if you were going to an interview at the employer's office.

4. Behavior:
  • As the first 10 seconds often are most important, its good to make a strong first impression;
  • Prepare your introduction in advance;
  • Practice greeting the representative of a given company (finish with a smile and a handshake);
  • Prepare a 60-second resume (just in case) presenting your basic knowledge, skills and experience (if you have such), as well as the spheres you are interested in or what kind of position you are looking for.
