Job Seeking? Try a Career Fair

What I like the most about career fairs is that you have an opportunity to meet with hiring managers and recruiters face-to-face. There are no easily agitated receptionists, evil gatekeepers, or electronic and political red tape in your way. This is the one place where it is the recruiter’s duty to meet you personally!
Job seekers often tell me that they are looking for an in, a hook-up, or connection. Well this is your chance to go in, make a connection, and get the ”in” you’re looking for. But, this is easier said than done. Remember, the point of a career fair is to get a lead that will take you from applicant to prospect by landing an interview.
