Students: Set yourself up for success

To make a good impression with potential employers, consider:

  • Creating a LinkedIn profile  At the Career Fair we will be taking free, professional-looking photos of students, suitable for LinkedIn. Just look for our photographers or ask at check-in.
  • Dress the part  Business casual to business formal is recommended—whichever is most comfortable for you. Just remember that you’ll want to look professional and appropriate for your industry. Need some interview attire? Dress for Success has a selection of free items for men and women.
  • What to bring  Make sure you have enough printed copies of your résumé to give to company representatives. Bring something to take notes with—like a pen and paper or a device—as well as a folder to collect handouts. You also should be ready for an on-the-spot mini-interview.

Questions or Concerns?

Still not sure what to wear (or not to wear), or how best to answer a recruiter’s questions? Contact our Career Services Office for help with your résumé, interview prep, how to dress, or any other concerns you may have. Current students and alumni are welcome to use these services.
