"The best advice that I can give to Georgia Tech students is to come to the fair well rested and full of positive energy. Recruiters are interested in students who are excited about the career opportunities ahead of them. Treat the Career Fair as a chance to prove to employers that you are someone that they will want to work with and that you will be an awesome asset to their team. You never know where a conversation will take you, so be sure to put your best foot forward on Career Fair day.
