DURING
Drexel Career Fair

1. Develop new employer contacts and learn market information directly from employers

2. Remember that
quality
of contacts made is more important than
quantity
of employers seen

3. Many representatives do not give out specific contact information on their business card; you may need to ask

4. Share with employers why you're a good fit - show you've researched the company!

5. Broaden your search to include employers outside of your major to increase your chances of securing an interview
