Has anyone ever had luck at a job fair? I told a family member not to waste her time but it upset her. She asked why would it be a waste of time. So it got me thinking....has anyone ever had any type of luck at a job fair?


I know absolutely no one who has ever gotten hired by attending a job fair...

IMO Yes and no.  It depends on who is hosting the job fair.  If it is a school affliated job fair (i.e. UIC Engineering job fair) then yes it is worth it.  But if it is something like PSIsomething or NAACP affiliated, then prepare to struggle for a bit.  IMO it is a good place to network and get your face out there and you could be fast-tracked into the application process.  But I must stress that this is my experience.

While still in college I never had any luck. But I still went to one specific to my major towards the end of my program and found a position.
Our university gave special workshops and everything on the dos and donts and how to stand out and be successful at the career fair

When I used to attend all I was ever told was to apply online....Like WTF? I could have figured that out without getting dressed to come here...

So yea, I just finally stopped attending them...thank God those days are over. Standing in lines for what seems like days only to be told "Oh great....here's my card just apply online!" Angry
