advice from the pros

What should students do to rise above the competition?

Biggest thing to present to a recruiter, major and GPA aside, is your experience. Whether your experience came from climbing the ranks at your part-time job or an internship or a hard lesson learned on a project, tell the recruiter that and make sure to give specific examples. Without those experiences, you can easily get lost in the shuffle.

Initiative speaks volumes to potential hiring professionals. In the end, this event is yours to succeed at finding out more information about your future career and employer. While there is a lot of competition, always remember there are a lot of companies hiring and looking for talent. And while your first choice might not turn out the way you plan, be flexible.
