Job Fairs

Career Fairs are a great way to network and to get exposure to a large number of organizations at one time. Remember that career fair recruiters may see hundreds of students in a day. You need to prepare a 30-second to one-minute "commercial" to sell your skills and abilities so that after the fair is over, the recruiter remembers you.  Also, to stand out to an employer, it's important to follow-up after the event.  Be sure to attend the annual Career Fair in the fall, as well as the "How to Work a Career Fair" presentation before the event to learn tips on how to present yourself well to recruiters.
