Prepare for Professional Events

The Green Career Fair and the Green Networking Breakfast are both valuable opportunities for you to advance your professional career and network with employers. We've rounded up our best tips and tricks to help you succeed at your next professional event.

Attend a Workshop

Sustainable Carolina hosts professional development workshops to help students prepare to put their best foot forward for the Green Career Fair and Green Networking Breakfast.

Conduct Research

Although both events are a great opportunity to learn more about employers, research attending employers to learn about organizations that most align with your career goals.

Practice, Practice, Practice!

Employers will be most impressed by students who can speak confidently and are able to showcase their strengths and experiences. Start by creating an “elevator pitch,” or a 30 second introduction to yourself.


Dress Professionally

Employers expect to interact with students who are polished and professional. For the Green Networking Breakfast and Green Career Fair, business casual is acceptable. However, it is always best to be overdressed than underdressed. Avoid jeans, flip flops, t-shirts, and shorts.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
