Engineering Honors - Preparing for the Career Fair Spring 2017

What is the Honors Career Fair Prep Clinic?
This clinic provides engineering honors students with training in building resumes, job interview strategies, and discussions from volunteering companies invited to participate. 

Why is it important?
This clinic allows companies to provide professional direction and guidance to some of the top engineers Texas A&M has to offer. With this one-on-one interaction, students network with professionals. Likewise, companies participating in this clinic get to see and potentially meet their next new-hire.

See what students had to say:

It was a fantastic warm up for the actual career fair the following two days. To be able to interact with business representatives on the spot takes some getting used to, and I am extremely thankful I had this opportunity to practice. Furthermore, I made some strong connections and learned more about some companies that I am interested in.”

“The fact that I could sit down with a professional in a more relaxed setting than an interview so I could not be nervous and simply discuss my resume helped me immensely. His advice for some of the points was invaluable. And he left me feeling more confident about my career prospects.”

"The best parts were the resume clinic and mock interviews. They helped guide what to put on my resume and how to highlight important parts of my resume in an interview."

“The most interesting part was hearing what they were looking for in a conversation/career fair speech. They wanted the student to be well informed about their company already and talk about their interest in the company such as projects. They were also seeking confidence and experience. The event helped me prepare for career fair but I still felt awkward talking about only high school experience. While talking to the representative of Lockheed Martin, he told me be to be consistent with what I'm talking about and try not to change topics too often. Overall I feel motivated to gain some college experience and work on presenting myself once I've built it up as well as keeping my resume clean and concise.”
