How Your Student Can Make the Most of Career Fairs

Primary tabs

The fall Career Fair, hosted by the Center for Career Discovery & Development (C2D2), is the largest All-Majors Career Fair on Georgia Tech's campus. Every year, more than 400 companies and 5,000 students attend the fair. Companies attending the fair are hiring co-ops, interns, and full-time positions, with students from all majors and degree types. This year's fair will be held on September 17-18, 2018, in Georgia Tech's Campus Recreation Center.

Students who want to nail the interview and land the job can prepare by taking advantage of mock interviews, resume blitzes, seminars, etiquette dinners, and workshops, where professionals from business and industry, their college, or Georgia Tech’s Center for Career Discovery and Development share their guidance and expertise.

How do they manage the pitfalls of personal appearance, the intimidation of the interview, the hazards of the handshake, the night-before nerves?
