Hardy said if you are headed to the job fair to always always be prepared and open to any possibility!

“Have your resume. There is nothing more frustrating then someone coming in saying are you hiring and they don’t have any resume. Do a little homework. If you know who you are going to approach do a little homework about the company.”
