Tips for Success

  • Look at the event planogram [PDF] to find out where your targeted employers will be located so you can maximize your time at the event. 
  • Prepare and practice a 30-second introduction—also known as an elevator pitch—including your name, professional interests and goals, and reasons for interest in the particular employer. Maintain eye contact and remember to smile!
  • Answer employer questions to the best of your ability. Don't ramble.
  • Ask questions about the company or organization to indicate your interest.
  • Take notes during your discussions. Keep a record of who you talked to and what you talked about. 


Interviews for selected students will be held at Bank of America Career Services Center on September 7 (8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m.). If you are invited for one or more interviews, you will be notified of the scheduled time.
