Job fairs and expos are common at local colleges, or in residential neighborhoods, here in the Central Florida area. Now that October is here, college graduates who will finish their degree program at the end of this semester are actively searching for employment and/or internship opportunities. Additionally, employers in a variety of fields seek to “bulk up” their staff during the Fall and Winter seasons as the holidays approach, and these temporary positions can often turn into full-time opportunities if you prove yourself valuable. Job fairs are a wonderful way for those seeking a job and those seeking staff to meet and greet in a safe, low-pressure environment while getting a sampling of the local market. In Polk County, gated communities are plentiful, and if they have clubhouses, they are a favored place for holding and hosting these job fairs and similar events. PHR Staffing Solutions is a avid supporter of this type of event, since they provide a set time and place for accepting applications in a large number instead of having them trickle in slowly. This is especially helpful if you are attempting to fill a job with an immediate need for a hire.
Our clients include businesses of all kinds from Winter Haven, Lakeland, Lake Wales, Bartow, and surrounding areas, and they all know they can trust PHR to manage their current openings at job fairs and events, which means they don’t have to take up their own company time to be present to accept applications and represent their business. Potential employees can feel confident in handing over their applications to us since we specialize in matching them with the position that is perfect for their unique skill set and desires in a job.
How should you prepare for a job fair? If you’re an applicant, bring your current resume, and any other references, business cards, etc. that are pertinent to your skills and qualifications. Business owners who are interested in utilizing job fairs to make a hire should contact PHR Staffing Solutions and find out how we can represent your company and pull only the best applicants for you from the various employees that come through. Do you own a venue, or do you live in a neighborhood and would like to see a job fair event come to your clubhouse or community? Make it happen! Set a date, then let us know, because we are always looking for local opportunities to take on new high-quality employees for our local businesses. We will come out and set up a table where residents can find out about some of the current positions we have open, fill out applications, turn in resumes, etc.
Let us help make your job fair a success, whether you’re hosting, applying, or looking for new staff members!
