Career Fair Testimonials

Best one so far. Venue was wonderful, candidate pool was diverse and expansive. Excellent event -- well organized, well staffed.
Chicago Career Fair -- Government Recruiter
The job fair was great. I got an interview and job offer from a company I wouldn’t have thought I would seek employment from but for the job fair.
Chicago -- Army E-4
Bigger turn out than a general job fair. Received many qualified candidates and a decent amount of applicants.
