Job fairs are becoming more popular as a means of finding entry level candidates. Job fairs are a great way for candidates to meet multiple employers on the same day. You don't need to be unemployed to attend a job fair. If you are just seeking part-time work, or considering a change in employment, attending a job fair could be beneficial.
JobCentre Plus holds regular job fairs to give job seekers the chance to meet and talk to employers who have vacancies available. Job seekers can pick up application forms or be interviewed at the events. Many well known employers take part in the JobCentre Plus job fairs. These events also give employers the chance to speak with others in the same business sector.
Before you attend a job fair you should do a little homework or you could end up wasting your time. At job fairs, employers tend to size up candidates quickly based on appearance and communication skills. If you attend a job fair, remember to prepare as if you are attending a regular job interview. If you check ahead of time, you can find out which employers will be attending the job fair and this might give you and advantage over other candidates if you choose to research those companies.
