Interviewing tips

Prepare Your Résumé

This is what employers will be judging you on once the Career Fair is over.

Do Your Homework

Knowing what a company is all about will give you a head start with the recruiter. It saves time and makes a better impression.

Dress for Success

A well-groomed professional appearance will go a long way.

Bring a Firm Hand Shake

Make eye contact and show them your interest through your positive body language!

Ask Questions

Be enthusiastic and inquisitive about the company. Get a feel for the company to know if you share thoughts and ideas on what makes a good work place.

Be Prepared to Talk About You

Emphasize your GPA and extracurricular activities.

Don’t be Greedy

Other students are waiting for a chance to speak with recruiters too. Be respectful of the time you spend talking when others are waiting.
