The best way to market yourself is show them your unique interest in the lab. Epi/bio skills are a big plus because any research lab requires a lot of data analysis.

Be passionate! Do your research on your area of interest – what labs seem to specialize in that area? What labs would you be most excited to work for?

I don't have a great answer for this one, because I applied directly to my position at MGH without going through a campus recruiter. Generally, it's good to be able to show your research experience, including volunteering in a lab at school, writing a senior thesis, etc. As with most jobs nowadays, one of the best approaches is to find a connection to MGH (the closer to your desired position the better) who can promote you and set up conversations. For students going to colleges in the Boston area, it shouldn't be hard to find someone with an MGH connection, and networking prior to sending in a formal application can help you stand out, especially if you have a strong recommendation.
