Are you a college student gearing up for the upcoming career fair this fall? Landing that dream job or internship starts with a great first impression. One way to boost your confidence and make a memorable impact is by flashing a bright and confident smile. In this article, we'll provide you with essential tips to prepare for the career fair, and we'll also discuss how having a white smile can play a crucial role in leaving a lasting impression.


  • Before the career fair, research the companies attending. There are sure to be plenty, and you may not have time to talk to all of them. Figure out which ones you're most interested in and make sure to find them first!

Perfect Your Elevator Pitch

  • An elevator pitch is a concise, 30-60 second introduction about yourself. It should highlight your unique qualities, skills, and what you're looking for in a career
  • Craft multiple versions of your pitch to tailor them to different employers or industries you're interested in.

 Bring Your Resume and Portfolio

  • Create a well-organized and error-free resume that showcases your education, work experience, and relevant skills.
  • You can visit your school's career center for helpful tips and feedback!
  • Have multiple copies of your resume to give to recruiters. You won't be able to share everything in your elevator pitch. 

Practice Interview Questions

  • Practice with a friend or through mock interviews available at your university to refine your answers and delivery
