REQUIRED to enter the Job and Internship Fair are:

Resumes:

   Resume Assistance is a great resource to get prepared before the job fair. Your resume will be collected at the door, so bring 10+ resumes. Go by Schuster 102 to have your resume printed on FREE resume paper.

 

Professional Attire:

   Make an impressive first impression as you meet your future employer. You don't want to stand out in a negative way; plus you will not be admitted to the Spring Career Fair until you are in appropriate professional dress. See below for Career Fair attire Do's and Dont's for Men and Women.

 

 

If in doubt, Google It! Research "career fair professional dress" to get additional ideas about professional attire.
