If you’re spending your spring break thinking about your job search, either for a summer internship, part time position, or full time job after graduation, then it would certainly be wise to think about how you can present yourself to employers as an ideal candidate. This can be done through self evaluation to help you understand the strengths that you have to offer, through research to help you determine what you are interested in pursuing and what companies are looking for, and through preparation so that you can make it to, and excel in, the interview process.
Some of you, along with students from many other area colleges and universities, may have attended the CPEC Job & Internship Fair a few weeks ago in search of job leads. I hope that you found that to be a beneficial experience! After the event we asked for recruiter feedback on their overall perception of students/candidates in order to provide you with future guidance on approaching employers. Their advice can be applied to any interaction you have with professionals in your job search.
