TTU College of Business has established a precedent at the Nashville Career Fair over the last 9 years. We do not carry in backpacks, we are all dressed in business professional clothing, we are prepared, our nametags speak for us, our resumes are polished as are we. Employers look for us now. Our students on average receive more interviews and job offers than any of the other 17 universities attending. Take advantage of this oportunity. It’s free! You learn volumes from the experience. It’s silly not to practice and polish your professional development skills while you are in college. You’ll need them. Believe me.
Here's what you need to do to get your "Ticket to Ride":
- Attend Ticket to Ride Info Workshop November 14 at 11 a.m. in Johnson Hall Auditorium. If you cannot attend the workshop, please view and print this handout for important details and watch your email for updates.
- Register to attend the event now through February 7.
- Mark your calendars to attend the Nashville College to Career Fair on Tuesday, February 11 at 10 a.m.- 3 p.m. at the Williamson County Ag Center.
- Research employers before you go. Visit their sites. Apply online. Be prepared to meet them at the fair. You may view a list of employers that will be attending via www.nashvillefairs.org. Click on “College to Career Fair Participants”. Directions to the fair are also on this site. New employers add every day, check it all the way up to the fair date.
- This event has a Business Professional Dress Code. Be sure you have a business suit to wear to the fair. Make sure it fits properly and is tailored to fit you.
- If you need to utilize the Business Professional Clothes Closet, fill out a recipient form and make an appointment with Ms. Carpenter.
- Polish your resume and get as many opinions and as much guidance as you can. Don't wait until the last minute! Appointments with Career Services for resume and mock interview assistance need to be made via their office, room 328 of the UC, or by email at email@example.com.
