It's always a good idea to follow up with employers you meet at job fairs. Sending a follow up letter or email message reiterates your interest in the organization and serves as a reminder of who you are to a busy recruiter who met with many candidates during the event.

Here is an example of a follow up letter to send or email to a recruiter met at a job fair.

Follow Up Letter to an Employer Met at a Job Fair

Dear Ms. Grant,

We met two weeks ago at the Education Career Fair in Boston. I enjoyed speaking with you about ABC Charter School's mission, and the work you do with the students as a college counselor.

I wanted to reaffirm my interest in the counseling position at your school. ABC Charter School's goal of sending every student to college is one that I strongly believe in, and I know that my counseling experience and passion for working with inner-city students make me a strong candidate for the position.

I have attached an updated copy of the resume I gave you at the Education Career Fair. I will call next week to see if we can arrange a time to discuss the position together. Thank you so much for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Adam LeDuc
