Penmanship is key!

Many employers will offer you the chance to complete a brief information card listing your name, address, phone, graduation date, email address and academic program/area of specialty. Take the time to print neatly and clearly – especially your email address. Better yet, make and print labels in advance and simply apply them to the cards. It would be a sad day to miss out on the job opportunity of your dreams because of poor penmanship!
