Feel free to browse the tables and walk up to an employer to ask about available opportunities. Employers are here to answer your questions, market themselves to you, and accept resumes.

It might, just might, be nice to be in at least business causal attire if you would like to make a seriously good impression on a particularly interesting employer.

In addition, you should attend one session of the Summer Job Funding Program to be held on the same day (Tuesday, February 5), at 12:30 and 5:30 in the Faculty Conference Room (next to the cafeteria) to learn about the Federal Work-Study Program and Touro's Public Interest Law Fellowships that can fund your public interest, government, or judicial summer job.
