Luckily, Stony Brook’s Career Center hosts a variety of job and internship fairs across departments to help students conquer their fears and connect with employers. The Career Center has 10 tips for navigating and acing your career fair experience.

If you do not have a resume, begin by creating a rough draft. (Consult the resume writing guide for some advice on this initial step.) Once you have a resume, visit the Career Center to have it reviewed by a staff member. You should have your resume critiqued early. This will give you time to polish and review it.
