Behind the Scenes at a Career Fair

Have you ever been to a career fair?  Thinking about attending next time?  Here’s a peek at what they look like, start to finish…

Before employers and students arrive, staff is working on set-up…

with attention to detail, of course.

(I was serious about the details.)

As you (the employer) arrives, the hosting Career Center will probably be very happy to see you…

…and will welcome you with open arms

While you set-up, our staff will take the event seriously…

(actually, students will too)…

but with all the balloons around, we might try to mix in some fun, too. Cue the dancing.

Side note: if your company is one of our corporate sponsors, we’ll try to give you some extra shout-outs to show you how much we appreciate your support.

Once the doors open, hundreds and hundreds of our awesome students will enter the room.

And it will look a little like this…

and this…

and this…for about five intense but exciting hours.

When it’s all over, we will look like this...

and this...

and lastly, this. I like to call this one 'naptime in a dark office.'
