Visiting a Career Fair
Consider attending one of the many career fairs on campus. Prepare in advance by reviewing the list of attendees and posted positions and practicing your elevator pitch.
Business Casual and Business Professional Clothing
Business casual and business professional clothing is often required when attending career fairs and interviews. See this guide from Stetson University to plan your outfit. The ULN Experiential Learning Expo requires business casual attire.
Visit UT Outpost’s Career Closet for free business casual and professional clothing.
Consider going to local thrift stores or off-campus stores like JCPenney, Ross, and T.J.Maxx. Outlet malls can be a great place to find highly discounted items. Check out online stores like ASOS, Boscov’s, and New York & Company for affordable professional clothing.
Plan to practice your responses to these common interview questions. We encourage you to schedule a mock interview with your college career service office or your coordinator.
