JobsInAL.com 2008 Career Fair Attracts Great Local Candidates
On September 10, JobsInAL.com, in partnership with Manufacture Alabama!, hosted a career fair at the Cahaba Grand in Birmingham. This successful event brought together area employers with high quality local job seekers.
More than 25 companies registered to exhibit at the event, representing many different industries. What the attending companies found when they arrived was a professional and friendly JobsInAL.com staff, along with very good quality applicants. In fact, 86% of the employers expressed that the event was successful for their purposes, and were likely to attend the next event in the spring. Job seekers who came through were able to have good conversations with some of the area's best employers.
The Cahaba Grand event space allowed for a comfortable atmosphere, providing seekers and employers with a great atmosphere to connect and get to know each other. Patrick Erb, the Manager of Outreach and Education for JobsInAL.com took the time to work with job seekers one on one, offering advice and directions on resume writing, interview practices, and the overall job hunting process.
