With the Spring Career and Internship Fair just around the corner (February 14th), the CLDC wants to make sure you have many resources available to prepare yourself. Entering an encounter with a potential employer when you are unprepared can be extremely nerve-wracking. It causes you to make unwanted mistakes like tripping on your words, talking too fast or using filler sentences. The CLDC prepared a week of events to make sure you are as prepared as can be.
