Hiring events can go both ways.. Good or Bad.. having attended such events before I can speak from experience. The Good is you can circulate around the room and pick and chose the right companies.. These are usually staffed by enthusiastic people smiling good positive body language and engage the seekers. That make you the job seeker want to approach the table. Then you have the Bad.. These are usually new employees from the company or also those who have been in the company for sometime. They are not being paid but are there as “Employment Volunteers” another way of saying they were picked by the manager your doing it for the company just sit there and put out your brochures and hope someone will stop by.. If you don’t you get any job seekers at noon call it a day So you just wasted time and did not get paid for it. These people have that “Why Am I Here Look” their body language is negative, looking bored, disinterested, your angry that your losing money and wasting time. On the other hand those people see it as a mini vacation from a boring job and at least you get out of the office… It is just as important job seeker to make the first move as well as the recruiter to bring that seeker in..

Boston is the place to work, I love it when I work in Boston. The city has so much to offer while working in or around the area.

Great advice, Ashley! Especially about having copies of a resume on hand. I once went to a hiring fair with 5 copies - which wasn't anywhere near enough to cover the tables I visited. Good tip...
