1) Show up.
“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” ~Wayne Gretzky
Employers hire PEOPLE not resumes. If you don’t go to the career fair you are missing a prime chance to talk directly with a hiring manager or other employees at the companies you want to work for. You will also miss the chance to find out about companies and opportunities you were not previously aware of.
Get dressed, be prepared and GO to the job fair.
2) Have a plan. Work your plan.

There is no one right way to job search. But most job seekers have the same priorities.

2) You also want to continually add to and nurture your professional community, and meet as many employers as possible.
