Frequently asked questions

  • Are attendees only looking for full-time jobs?
    No! Employers need you for their internships, jobs, and co-ops!
  • Should I bring my resume to the career fair?
    Absolutely! A resume is an excellent conversation starter when talking to recruiters. For most companies, it will be how they remember your interaction and contact you in the future.
  • Do I need to any research ahead of time?
    Having an idea of the companies you’d like to talk to before you walk into the fair will help you be more confident and less scattered in what can be a chaotic environment.
  • How should I be dressed?
    The recommended attire at the career fair is Business Professional. First impressions are everything.
  • As a freshman, am I too young or inexperienced to attend the career fair?
    No! Students of all ages are encouraged to attend. Companies are looking to hire interns and even freshman get hired. Attending as a freshman is great practice for future career fairs and networking events.
