⭕️ Missed the Fair? 
 
You still have the ability to see who attended in C4T - then search the database for job/internship postings they have available and still apply!
 
⭕️ Utilize Social Media
 
Using your fair notes as your guide, connect with recruiters and identify organizations of interest to follow on LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, & Facebook. Use these networks to learn more about the culture of the organization and future opportunities.
