What are the benefits* for my company to attend a CFEC Job Fair?

Access to Qualified Candidates
One of the benefits of participating in job fairs is that they give companies access to large pools of diverse and qualified candidates.
Saving Time and Money
While companies may have to pay a fee to participate in a job fair, they can save time and money by allowing recruiters to zero in on exceptional candidates quickly, rather than using the scatter-shot approach of general advertising. 

Meeting in Person
Allows recruiters to meet potential candidates in person from the very beginning, which can cut down time wasted lining up interviews for unqualified candidates. A career fair acts as a way for a company to conduct dozens of short, informal interviews over the course of a few hours. Face-to face meeting time lets recruiters put a human face on resumes and give extra attention to strong candidates. 

One of the biggest challenges that businesses face is attracting skilled workers who can help the business achieve its goals. It can be difficult for small, unknown companies to attract applications from qualified candidates. Job fairs are a common recruitment channel that present several potential benefits to the companies that attend them. Job Fair marketing efforts are geard towards reaching all of Central Florida job seekers.
