10 Questions to Ask at a Job Fair


What Types of Training Programs Do You Offer?

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.
