This is not your average job fair.  Finally-a chance to STAND ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TABLE!    Employers have asked for a chance to interact with our most qualified leaders.  Showcase the professional and leadership skills you’ve gained to them. At this fair, student leaders will set up booths and employers will approach the tables.  Take this opportunity to practice discussing these transferrable skills that employers seek that you're using in your organization: leadership, team-building, membership development, event planning, and problem solving and the elevator pitch.

HOW WILL I PREPARE?
There will be required prep sessions in video format YouTube prep video, to help you prepare for the job fair.  It will also be REQUIRED for everyone attending to meet with a career counselor to polish your resume. and elevator pitch.
