Tips from the Employers:

"Any employer is still going to remember a student's first impression, first words, and how they conduct themselves. Think Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks. He is articulate, thoughtful, and a grad of Stanford University…but most people cannot get past the emotional interview he gave. Fifteen seconds…fifteen seconds…and he is now branded by many by that perception. Be it right or wrong…it is the way it is."

"Energy!!"

"Dress like you want a career"

"Students should dress appropriately - this is potentially their first interview. First impressions make a lasting impression."

"Share a personal experience that would allow the employer to 'visualize' you and your abilities in the available position."

"Do your homework ahead of time on each company so you know which companies you want to focus on and speak with. Then only go to those companies on your list instead of wandering around aimlessly and asking companies 'What do you do?' It will help you make the most efficient use of you time."

"Research the companies. By doing so you'll know what business the company is in and a bit about the culture."

"To remember the old basics that still hold true today…a firm handshake, good eye contact, manners, and to present themselves confidently and professionally."
