    Pros

    great place to work,lots of good things and fun Never hurts to get your resume out where it can potentially be seen. If your credentials are in high demand, and there are an abundance of jobs that match, this can

    Cons

    cant find any,Not for the shy and retiring (or the mistakenly confident). You need to make a good impression in person and look prepared. Students who go to fairs without doing research in advance sometimes have a not-so-great experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    just apply your self it was ez
