MAXIMIZE THE HIRING EVENT
To maximize the brief time you have with each employer you need to know how your skills and interests meet their needs. Don’t just concentrate on the BIG names, there are often great opportunities with companies with which you are not familiar. End your pitch by asking a focused question that will engage the employer in conversation. "Could you tell me more about the new (product) you are developing?" "Could you tell me more about your financial management training program?"

Conduct yourself professionally at all times. Remember, you could be making an impression while you are standing in line or walking around the fair. Your ATTITUDE is important. Be positive, enthusiastic and friendly. ENERGY! Practice your 30 second pitch and incorporate positive non-verbal communication, such as eye contact, facial expressions, body language, posture etc.
