i went to a job fair /career expo (full disclosure: i work for Jobing.com
) and i am always interested how recruiters plan for their attendance at job fairs. i know that i prepare extensively for our job fairs from 10-12 days out from the event.
i use resume search heavily before the event and utilize our job postings/videos/company website information to excite candidates about the opportunities available with our organization. i am extremely proactive and invite people to learn more about us and the job fair. it takes the conversation to a different level when the candidate shows up to the event.
this is not my full preparation for a job fairs. i am curious how other recruiters plan for job fairs and what the results are.
