Making the Most of the Event

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to make an "all out" effort to meet with every employer that has the potential to hire you - now or after graduation. In order to make that happen you will need to be prepared. Preparation is the key to making a successful presentation at any job or career fair:

  • Prior to the Event (PREPARE!)
  • Day of the Event (PERFORM!)
  • After the Event (PERSIST!)
