What About the Kids:

What do I need to do to be a success?

Dress for success! No jeans, flip flops, b-ball jerseys, short skirts or bathing suits. Its a Spring Career Fair - Not Spring Break!
Bring a smile and a firm handshake. Noting promotes you faster than a great and memorable first impression.
Wear comfortable shoes. The Amway Arena is a big place. Walk smarter, not harder.
