Help each student prepare a resume, get business cards, and practice interviewing so they make the most out of CS conference job fairs.

  • Additionally, conduct mock interviews such that students learn what job interviews are like and can manage their expectations accordingly.
    • Note from CS Teaching Tips Team: suggest students work together to prepare for technical interviews as these can be intimidating and overwhelming, especially without the extra prep.
