Job Fair Wrap-Up

Career Link Job Fair 2014Leading off Hiring Fair season, Career Link’s first ever job fair was clearly a success.  With 18 employers and hundreds of job seekers and career changers, this event hosted here at the Career Link, created an environment prime for fostering new employment relationships.

A heartfelt thank-you to everyone who made this event a success.  The staff at Career Link, the employers who shared their time, the job seekers who attended, the media that spread the word, and River City Coffee for the delicious lunch.

The Numbers:

  • Job Fair day, Career Link’s door opened 470 times.  A typical daily door count is around 180.
  • 95 people signed up for a door prize
  • 78 people signed into our sign-in computer
  • 33 job seekers filled out a feedback form

Employers and job seekers alike were generous with their praise.

Employer Responses

Highlights:

  • “Found people I wasn’t really looking for but definitely could use”
  • “[Of the ten I spoke with] one good candidate for sure”

Job seeker responses

Highlights:

  • “Well organized and advertised”
  • “It was apparent that significant effort went into organizing”
  • “Very organized, stations clearly indicated”

What we heard from both job seekers and employers is that they would recommend Career Link use a larger venue for the next Job Fair to allow more privacy for conversations as well as a larger contingent of employers.
