At a career/job fair to stand out most it really comes down to your interactions with employers. Showing genuine interest in what they present is always a great way to start. If someone isn't interested in you because of your lack of experience it is always beneficial to ask what you can improve on. They might like you and keep your resume for the future and track your progress. You can't change anything about your application compared to others, but you can change how you are perceived. Additionally, if any talks or informational sessions are available with a representative from the company to familiarize yourself with I would recommend it a lot. One of the major reasons I was chosen over other candidates was because of my interactions with local employees.

I would make sure to dress appropriately, as if you were in the interview at that moment. I would also bring various copies of my resume to distribute when talking to a recruiter and ask a lot of questions. Overall I believe enthusiasm is important and genuine interest in working for a company or organization comes off well and truly sets you apart.

The best way to stand out is to be confident! The recruiters are people too, and I feel that the way they will remember you most is not too much through your past experiences, but how well you were able to hold a conversation. Always make sure to have a ton of resumes to give out to everyone you talk to, and ask for their contact info to follow up with them afterwards.
