In this week's career chat, we talked with Walter Middlebrook, assistant managing editor for news at The Detroit News. We used to recruit head-to-head when I was the recruiter at the Detroit Free Press. Alas, Middlebrook defeated me. He's good.

During the chat, Middlebrook offered practical tips on how to make the most of a job fair. He talked about how to prepare for the fairs, how to market yourself at them, and how to land successful interviews with the editors and recruiters there.
