Why I love career fairs

Minus the books in the picture (click to enlarge), the fruits of two and a half hours of career-expo-touring in the university career fair:
  • 6 T-shirts (yes that car in the bottom left is one)
  • 1 cap
  • 3 USB drives
  • 2 free iTunes track gift cards
  • 4 yo-yos
  • 4 dancing light balls
  • 8 mint packs
  • 2 digital calendars/alarm clocks
  • 30 different good quality pens
  • 12 highlight pens
  • 2 cloth frisbees
  • 2 packs of playing cards
  • 1 pair of binoculars
  • 2 flashlights
  • 1 stapler
  • 5 fighter jet stickers
  • 8 post-it note bundles
  • 2 photo holders
  • 1 mouse pad
  • 1 calculator
  • 1 electronic pocket Sudoku
Not bad, definitely. Fruits of labour, eh? :)

    S-k-y :)

  13. Sudipta, I'm sure you've attended "job fairs" in India and the contrast seems to be staring me in the face from what you've described. :-)

  14. wow, dat's a lottta stuff you have in here..looks like that collection is subordinating the job info factor ;)-Ms NMA

  15. Only for those freebies,I hope someday I make it to US for MS :D

  16. Never knew job fairs can benefit this much! Shall check out the next fair nearby. :-)

  17. LMAO...:) I just went two years back to my senior yr and career fair...:)

  18. This makes me think tht I too shd shamelessly pick things from the stalls :P... though I did pick but not from all of them!
