Career Fairs are a great place to meet face to face with recruiters and representatives from various agencies or companies of interest. They can be very busy and chaotic, but if you are targeted and strategic and sell yourself effectively, they can result in an interview or even a conditional offer. Many agencies that are actively recruiting will attend career fairs. Below are links to where to find career fairs on a regular basis, as well as some upcoming fairs. If you need any assistance please contact me at iwp@diversagroup.com.
