I know I never got much out of the career fairs at Cornell, since I wasn't an engineer, a math major, or in the Ag school studying business management. As a government major i was essentially expected to go to law school or bust.
When I graduated in 2002, the job market sucked. The class of 1999 had all gotten great jobs and I had salivated over the idea of that kind of opportunity only to see it dry up. Looking for a job after graduation seemed to me like looking for ice in the Gobi Desert- tough.
I'm proud to say that a combination of connections helped me to find a great starting point, in just under a year after graduating. I never would have found the job I got just by applying online.
