Career Fair Essentials

It's the season for career fairs and the first one is coming up. Career fairs provide the opportunity for students to be recruited for full-time jobs and internships. Not only are career fairs a great opportunity for future employment, career fairs also are a fantastic place to network. Maybe your dream company isn't hiring for a position with your qualifications right now, but in the future they might be! Show up to your career fair armed with enough business cards to last a lifetime, a padfolio + note pad (for writing down a future employer's contact info ), a fabulous pen, and dressed for success!
