Here’s how to make the most of the job fair:

1. Do your research
We have hundreds of different positions available on our mountains, think about what you’d like to do in advance. Inside or outside? Culinary? Working with kids? What’s your ideal work environment?

2. Dress for success
Treat the job fair like you would an interview.

3. Know where you are going
The Arrabelle is located in Lionshead Village at 675 Lionshead Place; Vail, CO 81657; parking in the Lionshead garage is free this time of year and the fair is just a short walk away through the village.

4. Polish an elevator speech
Think about a 20-30 second introduction speech that will tell the hiring manager a little bit about you, what you’re looking for, and all the positive skills and experience you can bring to their department.

5. Follow up
Gather all the contact information you will need to properly follow up on your interviews with hiring managers. Did you get the manager’s name? What is the position number you have an offer for? What are the next steps? These are all necessary to finalize any offers made!
