Day 3: Connecting with Recruiters: How to Make a Great First Impression – Feb 4 (11am – 12:00 pm)  

Have you ever shook hands with a recruiter and completely forgot what you were going to say next? Maybe you stumbled over your words or forgot your major! First impressions are not easy, but with a little practice and help from the University Career Center, you’ll be able to have more confidence in speaking with recruiters. During this event you will get to practice your elevator pitch with employers in a casual group session. You will also get to ask the recruiters questions about how to stand out & leave a great first impression.
