For many students, such fairs provide an opportunity to meet with multiple employers in the same day. Such fairs offer opportunities for those seeking career information and actual positions to meet directly with a variety of employers in a setting that is less formal than a one-on-one interview.

To give HR managers and applicants a standardized and structured environment in which to meet, learn about one another, pre-screen one another before a face-to face meeting, and to give everyone a place to go back to for follow-up activities after they have met.

The company representatives will provide information about general career opportunities as well as specific details on current openings.
