Follow up: Career Day loot

I wanted to follow up on my post about the stuff we got on Career Day. I agree with Connie Crosby's post that the Pez dispenser was cool. Here are some suggestions for future Career Days:
~~ If you're handing out a marketing CD that has "requires Windows" clearly printed on it, don't tell students that it will run on a Mac.
~~ Include a map at the entry that indicates where firms are in the room.
~~ Puzzles are fun! For example, the 12 question test that used to be on Osler's site was hugely popular - even for students not interested in Osler's. I think in general, law school students like puzzles.
~~ High-tech gadgets can be cool, hip and trendy.
~~ A Flash memory keychain would be an awesome giveaway. Even if it was only 64MB, it would still be useful. They're useful and easy to loose.
~~ If you can afford it, how about an iPod Shuffle? You can even put your firm's jingle on it.
~~Gift certificates for food and coffee are also great. Perhaps it wasn't the most expensive giveaway, but Bereskin & Parr's gift certificates to Tim Horton's were a bit hit. When we would get coffee before class, if someone pulled out a gift certificate, other law students would say, "courtesy of B&P?" That one hit home.

Okay, I'm going to try to get some reading done.
Later peeps.
