Shannon Wright, assistant director of career services, shared tips for a successful experience.” Prepare before the fair! Register early and research the organizations you would like to meet. Dress professionally to make a great first impression, even when attending virtual events. Get the name of the recruiter present and follow up; send an email thanking them for their time and connect with them on LinkedIn.”
