Get your résumé polished for the Spring 2017 Engineering Career Fair this upcoming Tuesday and Wednesday, January 24 and 25. The two-day event will be held at Reed Arena and will play host to more than 400 companies and 10,000 engineering students (which is roughly 1 company for every 25 students).
Do your research beforehand and use this nifty web portal to scope out companies you are interested in [https://sec.wisdomgroup.com/career-fair/students/fair-information/company-search
]. NOTE: Some companies might be present for only one day!
Here are some tips:

have your resume reviewed and catered to your career interests
research companies you are interested in
visit career services to practice interviews
practice an elevator pitch – these recruiters will be seeing hundreds, maybe thousands of students, over a day or two. Make sure you stand out, and quickly.
