How to Prepare:

  • Research the companies you plan to see this week. Find out a little about what they do and what kinds of job/internships they are recruiting. Check Careerolina or the company website for job postings and the list of employers who are registered for the Job and Internship Expo, Symposium, and Tech Fair.
  • Think of a question you have for the companies you plan to talk with. Maybe you have a question about the job, their culture, what skills and qualities they are looking for in an ideal candidate or the application process. Don’t just walk up and ask “what are you hiring for?” Show them you’re interested and that you’ve put some effort into finding out more about them! Be sure to visit our Corporate Partners page and familiarize yourself with those companies.
  • Make sure your resume is in good shape before you hand it to an employer. If you haven’t yet had it looked at, think about stopping in with University Career Services during their drop-ins, M-F from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. You should also attend Deutsche Bank’s Resume Workshop on Wednesday, September 7, from 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. in SN011. Learn about what’s important on a resume from the recruiter’s perspective!
  • Practice your introduction. Plan to come to the Career Fair Prep Workshop in SN011 on Tuesday, September 13, from 3:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. to learn about approaching employers!
  • If you have questions about how to prepare, contact Jade Barricelli, our CS career coach!
