Step 2: Practice your elevator speech so that you can succinctly introduce yourself to employers. Be sure to add to your elevator pitch something that gives the recruiter an understanding of why you are visiting their booth. For example, you could say, “I see that you have restoration ecology internships posted and I was wondering if you could walk me through what that role does on a daily basis.” This example demonstrates that you have done your homework and are making a conversation with the recruiter.
Step 3: Select appropriate attire. Most students searching for a job should select business professional attire. This means choose a flattering suit, sports coat with dress pants or a dress with a jacket. You can find gently used professional clothing there at The Career Closet.
