1. research the participating organizations and their job/internship opportunities (Careers4Terps and Career Insider); 2. have resumes that promote your relevant skills and qualifications (Optimal Resume); 3. practice what you'll say to employers that will make your candidacy stand out (CareerSpots and Virtual Mock Interview); and 4. dress professionally so employers will know that you are a serious candidate (CareerSpots).
