Career fair in a few weeks with banks such as Goldman, Citi, Morgan Stanley. Anyone who isn't retarded want to throw some tips on how I should introduce myself in this type of setting? Obviously wearing a suit and bringing a ton of copies of my resume.

just talk to them about your experience, try to differentiate yourself and make them remember you.

Why should they care who you are? They get 1000s of finance majors sucking their dicks for a job every day. Set yourself apart.

Got an interview with my #1 pick for an ad agency in NYC next week, so pumped.

Some interview questions I found one time. Mostly trying to see how you approach a problem and not for actually knowing the answer. They might help you.

1) Go in a suit, it matches the personality of the firms/businesses you are trying to be hired by.
1a) Don't go with a red tie. Although yes, it displays, "power" in the business world...as a person trying to get hired, stick with something more calming.

2) Have a copy of your resume (or 2, or 3) written for each of the firms you're interested in. Have this with a cover letter directed to their firm about why you'd be a great hire and a perfect fit for their company. (make sure to hand the right company the matching resume/cover letter...or you're f'd in the a.
2a) Your resume should be tailored to a specific job you're looking for. Take key words from the job description and use your experience, education, personal life to back up those words.

3) Fresh hair cut, firm handshake, look them in the eye.
3a) Come up with a 30-sec sell.

Also Ari all that **** is gonna make you look like a try-hard. No suit. Wife beater, cut-off jorts. Laminated resumes so they can't ignore it. Self-made business cards, preferably with power lifting numbers listed. Also "So, are you aware of who I am?" is an alpha ****in icebreaker.

What is synthol?

Site Enhancing Oil. It is not an AAS, its simply a oil injected into a specific muscle group and fills it with said oil to make it appear larger, It does not increase strength or actual muscle size. It's like filling a balloon with water.
