Employers, Did You Know?

You can increase brand awareness, get your name out, and more easily recruit talented job seekers by participating in a job fair. First, your presence will speak loudly – to attendees and to other participating employers. Job fairs are a vital bridge in connecting individuals and companies in mutually beneficial ways.
If you’re hiring, you will gain access to a pool of highly-qualified individuals in one day. Your participation in a job fair can help you connect with not only traditional, but non-traditional candidates as well. These candidates have developed a rich and diverse skill set that not only meets the employer’s needs, but many times exceeds them.
There’s great value, as well, in being able to meet face-to-face. This allows you to put a face with a name in terms of the application. Forget scheduling interviews, weeding through piles of applications and other time-consuming parts of a traditional job search. A job fair offers you the opportunity to assess applicants in a more personal way, and you may even decide to schedule first-round interviews based on those personal interactions.
One of the most significant hiring events in Bay County is coming up. The 2016 Career Expo is set for Wednesday, April 13, at the FSU PC Holley Center. Hours are 8 a.m. to Noon, with the first hour set aside for veterans only. It’s a great opportunity for you to meet the available candidates in today’s workforce, and to get your name out.
