Brandon attended two Career Fair Prep Workshops, used the CareerLINK resources available online, and found five companies he wanted to speak with at the Career Fair.
““I found my passion and the career path I want to follow for the rest of my life.””

I attended two Career Fair Prep Workshops [Career Fair Prep & Career Fair Prep from the Employer’s Perspective]. I used the CareerLINK resources available online, and found the five companies I wanted to speak with at the fair. I wrote and prepared customized resumes and cover letters for each of the companies. A week before the Career Fair, I attended a Drop-In Resume Makeover session. Here I got help making my resume look professional and I got more advice on how to conduct myself in front of prospective employers.

I got great advice from attending the workshops prior to the Career Fair and I felt confident and prepared for the next steps. It isn’t often you find something you are passionate about and I certainly did thanks to the Career Fair. I know I want to have a successful career in the Aerospace and defense industry. Because I had done my research, I found a company (Mercury Systems, Inc.; Product Management Group) that interested me, had core values that I agreed with and was successful.

BRANDON’S ADVICE FOR STUDENTS

Take full advantage of the resources, I got great advice from attending the two workshops prior to the Career Fair and I felt confident and prepared. If I had not attended the information sessions before the career fair, I know as a fact I would not have been able to have the opportunity I have now.
