As the entire world struggles through some pretty tough financial times, the job market has become extremely competitive in virtually every industry. Today, it is not only difficult for people to get a decent job, but it is also very difficult for employers to find qualified candidates. Due to increased competitiveness, only the best of the best are successful. Employers are looking for people who can not only do the job, but have outstanding performance. Finding a good job is getting harder as it is for employers to find the right people for the company.

Job fairs are well-organized recruiting events designed to bring together both employers and job seekers. Sponsored by professional associations, educational institutions, or community organizations, job fairs are designed to facilitate the employment process. Sponsors hire a salon, send out invitations to prospective employers, and handle administrative and advertising arrangements. Prospective employers established recruiting booths, offering various jobs as well as information about their company. A recruiting fair can last a single day or a full weekend, but there are also fairs that last a whole week.

In general, job fairs will focus on a particular field or industry, or a specific professional group (teachers, college graduates, etc.). However, be prepared, because the job fair also creates very competitive environments. You will have your booth among hundreds of other booths, and if they are industry specific, chances are everyone is looking for the same candidates. Plus, job seekers can easily compare their company to nearby competitors by simply walking around the room. It goes without saying that you should make a strong impression and do everything possible to create a good reputation for your company.

Be helpful and friendly, a person sitting bored in a booth and giving information in a flat and boring tone of voice will not make a good impression. Whether you greet applicants at a booth or at a table, you should show some excitement and talk lively about the jobs in question. Expose your company and convey an overall impression of quality and professionalism. Make sure the promotional information you distribute is substantive, concise, and well organized.

Carefully choose who will represent your company at the job fair. The people representing your company must be professionals and able to handle any questions that assistants may ask. Having a high-quality recruiting team can make a big difference. Job fairs are a pretty good method of finding good candidates for your company, as well as finding viable options if you're looking for a job.
