This seminar will help you navigate the career fair successfully. What should you do before, during and after the event? What skills are relevant to employers? How to set yourself apart? The goal is for you to feel confident and better prepared with the tools necessary to get the interview. I will also provide a brief overview of our services and events we have scheduled for the semester.
