Thought Leadership
Recruiters Helping Candidates Succeed at Job Fairs

By Tony Lee

The popularity of job fairs waxes and wanes with the economy, and in our current downturn, these gatherings are back again with a vengeance. From big cities to small towns, job fairs are being organized by national job boards, local chambers of commerce and all sorts of organizations in-between. And there’s no doubt that bringing together employers that have available jobs to meet with eager job hunters is a great concept.

The catch from the employers’ perspective is in making sure that candidates have the correct expectations before they head off to a local fair. As a participating recruiter, everything you can do to help prepare candidates for the experience will make the day that much more valuable for you and them.

When a laid off project manager was preparing to attend a recent job fair in a New Jersey suburb, for example, he focused on the same things he thought about when he first attended job fairs 10 years ago: the look of his suit, the quality of his resume, and the best way to avoid traffic while getting to the hotel ballroom. Things have changed, and he was in for a big surprise.

The fair was scheduled to run from 9am to 3pm, and the job seeker arrived around 10:30am. He was greeted by a line of fellow job hunters that, as far as he could tell, stretched from the ballroom down two hallways and into another empty ballroom. And that was just to register to attend.

Thought Leadership
Abundance of Top Talent is a Myth

By Barbara Bruno

Unemployment numbers are rising each month, but that doesn’t mean for one minute that there is an abundance of Top Talent in the Job Market. In fact, the opposite is more accurate. It’s important that hiring authorities realize it is difficult to attract top talent in the current Job Market.

It’s true; you may be receiving more unsolicited resumes than ever before, but are they of the caliber you want to hire? In most cases, the answer is no. Now more than any other time in history, it is critical that you hire the best person for the positions you have open.

The same is true now as when the job market it tight. Often the most qualified candidates are currently working for someone else but would contemplate a change for the "right opportunity." They are NOT unemployed:

  • They are NOT listed on any Job Board
  • They are NOT circulating their resume
  • They are NOT in an active job search
