CyberTexas Conference - Cyber Security Communities Throughout Texas

The CyberTexas Job Fair is held in conjunction with the CyberTexas Conference, August 20-21. Conference Registration is separate from the Cyber Job Fair registration. 

While the focus of the conference is on Texas communities, the information will have universal appeal and applications for organizations and communities nationwide. CyberTexas Foundation is collaborating with the ISAO SO this year and will host our conference back-to-back with the third Annual International Information Sharing Conference (IISC), hosted by the Information Sharing and Analysis Organization Standards Organization (ISAO SO), this August 21-22, 2019, in San Antonio, Texas. The two-day IISC event will again welcome cyber security information sharing and analysis organizations from around the world to address information sharing issues affecting the information sharing ecosystem and its impact on communities locally, regionally, nationally and abroad. The 2019 theme is “Information Sharing in Communities”. This conference is open to all as well.

Conference guests interested in attending both the International Information Sharing Conference and CyberTexas Foundation’s Conference & Tradeshow Exhibit will receive an early bird registration discount. The combined conference will be three days (August 20-22, 2019).

Tips for a Successful Job Fair

Be sure to register and upload your resume before the job fair. Recruiters receive a pre-registrant resume file before the job fair and may contact you to set up an interview. Don't be discouraged if you don't hear from an employer before the event, as not all employers will have time to review resumes beforehand.

A job fair is a networking event filled with hundreds of people with information about jobs. You're here to network with job seekers as well as employers to move your job search forward by making connections and gathering information.

Get in the right frame of mind. If you ask recruiters about the importance of attitude in a job search on a scale of 1 to 10, most of them answer 11. We all get nervous, but focus on being upbeat and friendly when talking to recruiters and other job seekers.

Talk to every employer if you have time. You've probably prepared for employers you're targeting, which is a great strategy. But talk to every employer in the room if you can. Give all of them the opportunity to learn about your skills and talents.

The Job Seeker Handbook may not include all of a company's job openings. Hiring needs change dynamically so use the Handbook as a guide to help you prepare, not as something written in stone.

Attend the resume reviews or career seminars being offered. It's an opportunity to learn and to interact and network with additional job seekers.

Prepare ahead of time. Review the Job Seeker Handbook and have a strategy for each employer you talk to. Which positions are of interest to you? What specific information can you gather to move your job search forward while making a great impression?

All recruiters are different so you will see a variety of responses depending on the recruiter and their hiring needs. Be professional at all times. Not every company will be a fit. If a recruiter isn't interested don't take it personally. Arguing with a recruiter or hiring manager or being rude is not going to get you hired.

When appropriate, ask for feedback. Many recruiters really do want to help job seekers improve their skills and get hired. You need to be mindful of the recruiter's time, but if they are offering advice to you, pay attention and then thank them for doing so.

If you have a big purse or briefcase or are carrying too many items, take them back to your car. One organized folder or portfolio will help you appear as a polished organized professional.

Close the deal. Be sure to get the hiring manager or recruiter's name and contact information so you may follow up. Even if today's discussion was not a fit, remember the value of networking for the future.
