This Career Fair only happens each Spring, so make sure you attend! And with the most employers attending in the history of this Career Fair, you won’t want to miss it.”
To ensure that attendees make the most of the opportunity to connect with potential employers, it is crucial to prepare for the fair. Here are a few tips for preparing:
