What advice do you have for students attending a career fair?
I would advise students to take the time to really prepare for the career fair. This one day has countless opportunities that could help shape students’ futures. Attend information sessions, talk with upperclassmen, all students should come into the fair with a plan of how they will best take advantage of the day. Whether students are actively looking for jobs, want practice talking with recruiters, or need help shaping their resumes, I encourage students to understand their goals and know the best steps for achieving them.
