  • Read my favorite article on career fairs, What Recruiters Wish You Knew About Career Fairs. While this article was written prior to virtual fairs, much of the advice translates to a virtual setting.
  • Are you feeling uncertain about what to ask recruiters after you give your 30-second elevator pitch? The article below offers a great sampling of questions to consider.

Try to enjoy the experience.  Best of luck!

All the best,
