BUSINESSES: Why You Should Go!
Career Expos are loaded with benefits for businesses - and they're not limited to recruiting!

Face to Face Interaction - Face to face communication offers the first glimpse into whether a person is a good fit for your company culture and can shorten the screening process

Networking - These events can be used as mixers for businesses to learn from each other and connect with career counselors

The Unexpected Candidate - Sometimes the perfect candidate is not in your target audience; with several industries all under one roof, you never know who you might find

Make an Early Connection - Spotting talent early is an excellent way to nurture a relationship and give you an edge over your competition
