Connect Through Career Fairs

PT WORK Force can help you find a career fair nearby.

Most high schools and many elementary schools hold career fairs on a yearly basis. This is a way for students to learn about various options for careers. In many cases these events feature career paths that don’t require a four-year college degree. Businesses in the PT/MC field have had great success in participating in career fairs as a way to find promising new hires. Read what your industry peers have said about participating in career fairs.


What to Bring

To attract potential new hires at a career fair, many participating businesses bring a pop-up banner decorated with their company name/logo and some pictures of their employees and/or products. If you have product that moves, you might want to build a demonstration of some type to engage your audience with an interactive display.

Small giveaway item (pens, notepads, magnets, etc.) imprinted with your company name and website help those you meet remember you. Having a candy dish at your booth with good candy (chocolate, Starburst, Dum-dums are just some that people seem to prefer) will get people to stop so you can talk with them about your business and the career opportunities it has.
