    Get your resume together, keep it concise, and to the point.  Preferably 1 page.  Most readers you lose if it is to long.  Highlight any special skills, training, hobbies or interests that would make you an ideal candidate for the job.  Prepare your outfit.  depending on the setting, make sure you are clean and professional (should be a no brainer) but you may want to remove any odd jewelry, and make sure your hair is clean and all one color.   Nice shoes and a good smile are always a bonus too!  The day of... relax, take a deep breath, be confident.  If you get the job that is great!  If you don't, rest assured you tried your best and something better is around the corner.   smile

    Make sure you....

    -Dress appropriately and professionally. If you're a guy, wear a suit. If you're a girl, wear a suit! Don't forget about your hair, etc.!
    -Have copies of your resume and cover letters for the companies that you are really interested in applying for. Do your research first and see what companies will be attending so that you can draft cover letters in preparation.
    -Prepare an "elevator pitch". A 30 second synopsis of yourself and your skills. Practice this speech in front of the mirror!
    -Be confident, friendly, and approachable. You don't have anything to lose so just relax and be genuine because it will really show through.
