Informational Video

In addition to attending the Orientation Session, students are encouraged to view two short, five minute videos about the fair. The videos show excellent footage of the fair and interviews with other undergraduate students in attendance. It provides a prime example of what to expect the day of the fair including the number of resumes to bring, dress code, a peek into the convention center, and tips from employers.
