Career Fairs can feel extremely overwhelming, with hundreds of potential employers waiting for you to tell them why they should hire YOU. As daunting as they seem, they can be an incredibly useful resource for college students looking for internships or post-graduation jobs if you are prepared.

Dress for Success

The first thing the company representative will notice is how you are dressed. Professional clothing is a must. Also, bring a folder or some sort of organizer to keep copies of your resume and business cards. A pen is always a great thing to have on you, so that you can make notes on any materials you are given by companies.

3 Clubs to push you into an active lifestyle

It's the question no one wants to answer...

"When was the last time you worked out?". I remember as a freshmen in college, spending hours a day trying to stay on top of all my school work but never finding the time to work on my health. Aka, going to the gym. For some it's weeks since they've been to the gym and for some it's months but regardless for a lot of students it's not as frequent as it should be.


Whether the problem is time management, laziness or lack of exercise knowledge, we all are guilty of slacking on the gym at some point. However, what most of these students don't know is there are organizations to help them get into a more active lifestyle. Joining fitness clubs and organizations can help students to become more accountable for taking care of their health, as well as gaining confidence and becoming a more motivated individual.
