In this two-part workshop on career fairs, we had presentations on both networking as well as preparing your resume. First, Brianna Blaser of Science Careers presented Making Connections: Networking and Career Fairs. Her presentation focused on the basics of good networking and how to employ those tactics in a career fair setting. After that, Lori Conlan from the Office of Intramural Training and Education at the NIH spoke on Job Searching and Resumes. She answered attendees questions about their resumes and offered plenty of targeted advice.
