the things ahead.  Let me know what employers were looking for in candidates and
helped me prepare for that role.  Interview stream was a great help for me,
especially going over some questions that I might be asked and what employers
are really looking for in those answers.  The Career Center was a great help
overall in preparing me for interview process and helping me stand out from
other candidates.

Advice for students:
  BE PREPARED!!!  Employers

For students

being there.  Always act and dress professional, shake hands, make eye contact. 
Never underestimate the value of follow up and thank you emails and/or letters,
they will go a long way.  Make that first impression count, more than anything,
they will remember the first impression you make on them.  Remember, for people
in my situation, you have to stand head and shoulders above your potential
competition, so every small detail will count in the long run.  LISTEN AND TAKE
