Preparation is the Key to Success for the Upcoming Winter Career & Internship Fair

* Review the list of companies attending the career fair who are recruiting for your major (available in Bobcat Career Link in the “Attend Events” section).

* Create a list of your target companies.

* Research your companies of interest (their website is a great starting point) and be prepared to tell a recruiter why you are interested in their company.

* Prepare a 30 second commercial. This is an enthusiastic introduction of yourself, which typically includes: Name, Major, Year, Intent (Internship or full-time job), why you are interested in the company, and asking a good question that shows your interest. Also think about experiences from your past (work, academic, student involvement) that showcase what you have to offer an employer.

* Dress Professionally. Recruiters equate how neatly you dress with how neatly you work.

* Relax. Be Confident. Be yourself. Everyone wants you to succeed at the Career Fair.
