The fall semester has kicked into gear, and with it comes the general feeling of “what is next?” as classes and clubs fall into a regular pattern. This could mean your sights are set on a summer internship or on securing a position for the looming post-graduation leap. In any case, there’s a fair chance that the Career Fair will be a place for you to explore opportunities for your next professional move.
This year’s Career Fair will take place Sept. 12, 13 and 14, with different days dedicated to different industries. Over the three days, more than 140 organizations will be on campus, giving you the chance to talk with representatives from companies both familiar and new to your professional purview.
With this issue, we hope to prepare you for that future ahead — or to give you an idea of what that future could look like. From tips on what to bring to the fair to advice on how to approach potential employers, we have the tools you’ll need to succeed at the Career Fair. You can also sit back and take a break from networking with our selection of iconic workplace movies. So print out those resumes, and have no fear, Bears — you’ve got this.
