Employment Advice: "I've been to job fairs but haven't had any luck getting an interview or job. How should I prepare?"

Research what companies will be attending. Employers often ask attendees to apply online, so customize your resume and cover letter and submit ahead. Impress by letting them know you applied and offer copies of your branded documents.

Consider giving out job search styled business cards. Practice a professional introduction and answers to interview questions. Dress in interview attire and smile! A great first impression may make all the difference! Remember to ask for business cards for follow up afterwards to thank recruiters and remind them of your interest.
