To remain competitive in today's tight marketplace, companies are looking for employees who actively upgrade their skill sets. This is particularly true for high-tech jobs like software developers, Web developers and network administrators. If you want to make a positive impression at the job fair, you need to come across as a talented, skilled employee who is eager to learn even more.
When asking about training programs, be careful not to give the impression that you're looking for a free education on the company's tab. Instead, lead off the question by telling the recruiter about a positive experience you had with a previous employer, where a training program led to increased productivity or a particularly successful project [source: White]. Even better, come prepared with an example of a skill set that you're eager to acquire and how that new knowledge would directly benefit the company.
