Career Fair Prep Week

College of Business and Technology (CBAT) Career Fair Preparation Day/Week, affectionately known as "Prep Day" in the college, is an annual event that takes place one week prior to the college's career fair, usually in late February of each year.

The short term goal of Prep Day or Week is to "prepare" students for attending career fair; the long term goal is to offer students workshop sessions to improve their job search readiness as they transition from student to job seeker.  In the past, the college has partnered with area human resources professionals, many of whom are CBAT alumni, to deliver sessions that are timely and informative. 

More recently, Prep Day/Week has been offered in concert with corporate sponsors, reaching out to students in workshop sessions and, more importantly, in the classroom. Class presentations offered by companies address a host of topics encompassing corporate branding, diversity in the workplace, the global economy, leadership, corporate culture, and competitive positioning.
