Fair Preparation and Skip the Check-in Lines With #MegaFastPass:

Properly prepare for the fair and put your best foot forward! University Career Services at New Brunswick provides preparation resources for Rutgers University–New Brunswick current students and alumni. If you are not affiliated with RU-NB (either a current or former student of the campus) you will need to seek preparation resources through your own campus.

Preparation is paramount! The following options are available during the weeks leading up to the fair.

Workshops and Resume Clinics (click title for more information):

You may also meet individually with a staff member through advising appointments and resume review drop-in hours (learn more).  

The #MegaFastPass will allow students access to express check-in and bag check lines at the fair.  Students who attend one of the above resume clinics or stay the entire time at the “Insider’s Guide to the Career Fair” workshops are eligible to receive the #MegaFastPass.  Beginning on Tuesday, September 5, students may also receive a #MegaFastPass when they participate in in-person appointments or drop-in hours.
