Here’s why:

  1. Large number of candidates in on-stop. The events give employers the chance to recruit employees who are educated in specific subject areas. Job fairs can increase the number of resumes and applications companies receive from candidates who are actually qualified for the positions they need to fill.
  2. You can increase brand awareness. Whether you are open for position or not, its always a good idea to introduce your company by expanding your connections starting from universities.
  3. Meet and directly hire people. One good thing in job fairs is that you can hire someone on the spot right after the mock interview. A lot of corporations are looking for talents during the fair, and what you need to do is to find the perfect one for your company.
  4. Expand your connections with other corporations. Attending job fairs is not only for those looking for employment, this is also a way to meet other companies and professionals.

On April 7, 2021, Innovature Team participated in the Job Fair at University of Social Science and Humanities, Thu Duc Campus. With the theme of “OVER THE CHALLENGES”, we aimed to help the students “EXPLORE THE CHALLENGE, CREATE SUCCESS”. Its was a pleasure to meet the undergraduates in different departments as well as other young professionals. 

We hope the information in this article will help your organize succeed in job fairs.
