Frequently Asked Questions
What do I wear?
Suits are always appropriate for the Fair. Business casual is okay too. Keep in mind, however, “business casual” doesn’t mean “classroom casual.” Organizations say first impressions count, so give some thought to what you wear.
I only have 30 minutes between classes… should I still come?
Yes! but maximize your time by checking the list of organizations before the Fair and picking your top 3-5 organizations. On the day of the Fair, register and head straight to your top choice organization. If there’s a long line move on to the next one on your list. 30 minutes is plenty of time to connect with 2-3 organizations.
What do I bring to the Fair?
Your resume will be helpful for organizations featuring full-time and/or internship opportunities. Unofficial transcripts, reference sheets, a pen/pencil and notebook may also come in handy.
