How to build your own career fair fair,careers fair plus
As well as being a career fair, the fair has been a great way for people to network and connect, says Laura Rafferty, the founder of career fair Fair UK.
She says there are more than 500 career fairs held annually in the UK, and it has been growing since the last one in 2014.
The fair is one of the most successful events in the country and the industry’s biggest gathering of employers.
“The fact that it’s held every year, it’s one of those things that is going to attract people, because there are a lot of young people in the industry and people are coming to the fair because they’re excited about their career,” she says.
Ms Raffery is the co-founder of the UK’s Career Fair Alliance, which runs the fair, and says that people come from all over the country to get involved and meet other people who share their interests.
“There are lots of opportunities for networking,” she adds.
“It’s also great to get young people involved in the careers fair and getting them involved in our events.
It’s great to see people being inspired by the careers and being inspired to get their careers started.”
Ms Rauffy says the fair helps people to “get the best out of each other” and is also a great place to network.
“You see lots of people going to jobs fairs and there’s a lot more networking that can happen in a job fair,” she explains.
“People are more interested in networking and being connected.
It makes people feel more confident, more confident about their skills and they’re more open to learning more.”
Ms Dolan, who is also the CEO of the career fair Alliance, says that there is also something about networking at the fair that she enjoys.
“When I first started out, the first job fair I went to was at the start of the year, and there were people sitting around me talking about their careers,” she said.
“I think it’s great when you get to know a lot about the industry that you’re in, you can get more out of it.”
‘Caught up in the hype’ She says the career Fair was originally designed to attract new talent, but she says it has become an annual event.
“What we’ve found is that it has attracted a lot, particularly from young people, who want to network with other young people.
Ms Nardella agrees that the career fairness is a great opportunity for people. “
We also see a lot younger people wanting to meet up and socialise with their mates, and having a good time.”
Ms Nardella agrees that the career fairness is a great opportunity for people.
“A lot of people are caught up in what they’re doing, or what they think is important and it’s really hard to find time for that, so it’s nice to see a career-related event that’s going to be there and give them an opportunity to connect with people they may not normally meet,” she added.
Ms Nellie says that a lot goes into setting up the careers Fair, and that it is important that there are no barriers in place for people with different interests.
The careers Fair Alliance runs a recruitment drive and events for young people and professionals in their area, with a focus on networking.
“With that we’ve seen a lot growth in the number of people who come and have connections with their employers,” Ms Nillie said.
The Fair also hosts a range of events, including a conference, which brings together professionals from across the industry to share their skills, experiences and knowledge.
Ms Dola says that this is a key part of the fair’s success.
“Working in a career is hard and you’re constantly in the spotlight.
It can be really stressful.
We’ve always had an opportunity for everyone to get a break from the pressures, and now it’s a chance to meet people from all walks of life and find out more about what it means to be a successful professional.”
