Do I need to prepare for Career Night?

Career Night is intended to be an informal career fair. It will provide you with the opportunity to discuss your career options with people currently working in the field.

Several employers may have current job or internship openings. If you are interested in applying for a job or internship, it is a good idea to dress professionally and bring several copies of your resume.
