  1. Hire a professional to improve the quality of your resume and cover letter, they will really help articulate your skills to employers. As a special offer to all of our readers you can save $20 when you purchase a Resume and Cover Letter at
  2. Dress to impress. Dressing professionally shows you are career focused and serious about starting a career, not just getting a job.
  3. Show your passion, but don’t go overboard. It’s good to be enthusiastic but don’t look desperate, nobody wants to hire someone who is desperate.
  4. Be prepared with questions to ask. You have to be comfortable selling yourself, but even more important is that you sound intelligent about the industry. Asking smart questions will stand out.
  5. Don’t start with “So what openings do you have?”. Introduce yourself, make eye contact, ask questions, ENGAGE! But don’t finish the conversation without asking about opportunities.
  6. Follow up with everyone you meet. Send an email, or even better a personal hand-written card, within a few days after the event and reference a specific topic you discussed with the person. It shows you paid attention and you valued their time.
  7. Reach out every time you have something valuable to offer. For example, if you spent the summer learning how to edit using Final Cut Pro, that’s a good reason to make contact again with the person you met from CBS College Sports. The idea is to stay “top of mind” and show you have the initiative to improve your skill set.
