career fairs don’t yield the desired results.
While there’s no guarantee a career fair will end

heaven, there are steps job seekers can take to
make the most of a career fair.
• GET A HEAD START. Thanks to the Internet, it’s
now easier for job seekers to make themselves
known at career fairs. Pre-registering for a career
fair, as opposed to simply showing up on the day of,
often requires registrants to upload a resume. This
gives prospective employers an opportunity to pre-

they want to contact at a career fair.
• BE PREPARED. A career fair should not be consid-

prepare for a career fair as if it were a job interview.
Everyone knows the value of making a strong first
impression, and job seekers can do just that by
preparing to answer any questions prospective em-
ployers might ask. While a career fair might seem
less formal than a typical job interview, it should not
be treated as such.

Sequel to
The Catcher
in the Rye
Although J.D. Salinger died last Jan-
uary, he still has a tight grip on his
work.
His estate is in the process of
banning the release of an unautho-
rized sequel to his famous novel The
Catcher in the Rye in Canada and the
U.S.
Swedish author and publisher
Fredrick Colting published his
“sequel” titled 60 Years Later: Coming
Through the Rye under the pen name
John David California.
Colting claims his novel is a par-
ody of J.D. Salinger’s classic, but
Salinger’s lawyers are prosecuting it
as plagiarism. According to them,
Colting is infringing on the copyright
of both the story and Salinger’s anti-
hero Holden Caulfield.
60 Years Later: Coming Through
the Rye is the story of Caulfield, now
known as Mr. C, trekking through
New York City after escaping from
his nursing home. It features the
same first-person narrative style,
controversial writing and even some
