Recruitment Fairs

Job hunting can be a challenging task, but Recruitment Fairs give you the opportunity to increase your exposure within your selected industry and improve your confidence when networking with potential employers.

Find New Job Opportunities

These events can be seen as informal interviews and so it is important to make a good impression. CV-Library have provided our top 5 tips to ensure your recruitment fair visit is as successful as possible.

Recruitment fairs are an excellent way of finding possible job opportunities as well as a chance to establish new contacts. Most events offer free one to one CV advice to help you enhance your applications. Experts in the industry are on hand to give you specialist information and help you find your perfect job.

Top 5 Tips for Attending a Recruitment Event:

  • Keep an open mind. Don't dismiss the companies you've never heard of before. Smaller companies may offer you a much more interesting job role and more benefits.
  • Be prepared. Take plenty of copies of your up to date CV and business card to hand out to potential employers.
  • Network! Don't forget what you are there for. Speak to employers and even fellow job hunters and use every opportunity to sell yourself.
  • Do your research. You'll most likely be able to find out which companies are going to be attending the fair, so look at which particular ones your most interested in and do some background research.
  • Ensure you follow up. Employers will meet hundreds of different people in one day at a jobs fair, so stand out by contacting the person you spoke to via phone or email the next day to thank them for their time and express your interest in their current opportunities.

There are hundreds of Recruitment Fairs happening every year across the UK, CV-Library have hand-picked some relevant events for you which are shown below.
