Brown said it’s an opportunity for people to connect and find work. Brown encourages people to come early and be prepared.

“Dress to make an impression. You don’t have to go all out, but definitely dress professionally. Bring a few resumes with you, it always helps. Great eye contact, a firm handshake, and be ready to make an impact in a future company,” said Brown.
