What to Bring:
1. Bring an up-to-date resume. While you will likely be asked to email or upload your resume, if you have a hard copy on hand, it makes for an easier conversation regarding your experience and what you are looking for.
2. Arrive ready to interview. First impressions are important and presenting a professional image in a business appropriate outfit will ensure a more engaging business exchange. Be prepared to impress and to be interviewed right away.
3. Stay upbeat and energized. Make an impression through your enthusiasm about work and the career path you are pursuing. Be sure to engage the organization’s representative in conversation and ask questions to demonstrate curiosity, as opposed to waiting to be asked.
4. Prepare an “elevator pitch.” Let the person you are engaging with know what you have to bring to the organization. Be prepared with a short statement about yourself and your background – less than two minutes. Try to hook the interviewer’s interest with something unique about yourself.
