Then get your resume critiqued by attending our drop-in hours (M-W, 2-4
p.m.), virtual express appointments (Th-F, 2-4 p.m.), Resume Rescue
day (Feb. 15) or scheduling an appointment with the Career Center.
- Research the employers attending the event in advance and prepare intelligent questions. Check out our Career Fair Directory to learn which employers are attending and what they are recruiting for.
- Practice your 30-second commercial aka your "pitch". Be sure to check out our micro session: Perfect Your Pitch (30-Second Commercial).
