- 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.
- Attend one of three upcoming prep session for careers in nonprofits (and think tanks), government, or education.
