Career Fairs & Events - Students

The most crucial part of the job search process is the formal interview. The secret of good interviewing is preparation and skilled communication. You do not get a second chance in an interview. From the moment you greet the interviewer until your departure, the impressions you create are irreversible. Making a formal, personal presentation of your knowledge, skills, and abilities requires research and practice.
