Dress: Industrial Roundtable is an outdoor fair. Students are encouraged to dress at least business casual and consider weather conditions when choosing a wardrobe.

Company Research and Selection: Students are highly encouraged to use the Career Fair Plus app to research attending employers and create a targeted list.
