Prepare for the Fair

1. Do your homework and have a fundamental understanding of its location, class size, and general application processes.

2. Come professionally dressed.

3. Map the schools, hospitals, and service organizations you want to meet.

4. Ask your questions AND let others ask theirs.

5. Use business cards. This makes it easier for recruiters to log you into their system. Include your name, contact information, online presence, etc.

6. Practice your one-minute elevator pitch. Let the recruiter know about you, your background, academic background, and your questions regarding their program.

7. Follow-up with recruiters within three days of the event so recruiters remember you
