CAREER FAIRS
The Career Center hosts a variety of career fairs throughout the academic year. All students are encouraged to meet with their career coach several weeks in advance of the fairs to prepare for and discuss successful strategies to interact with employers, how to dress for the career fair, and to have their resume critiqued.
