    In our daily life, we might have come across many Job Fairs.

    Let me provide you what exactly will go on a Job Fair.

    Generally these Job Fairs will go on in a college. Some times, at specific locations also, these Job Fairs will go on.

    The Management of the college will approach different companies through their references and invite them to the college to recruit the candidates of that college into those companies.

    In such a way, all the companies will conduct selection procedure in the same day in the same college.

    Candidates can attend for the company which they are interested and where their academic profile or academic records will be better utilized.

    The selection procedure might include
    -Written Test
    -JAM
    -Group Discussion
    -Technical Interview

    It will be varied from one company to other company.

    In present scenario, to the best of my knowledge, what I observed is, many of the candidates are not all benefiting out of Job Fair.

    The colleges are inviting the companies only for the sake of Placement record.

    Even though the candidates are selected in Job Fairs, they will not be getting offer letters from the companies.

    But the colleges are adding these candidates in the Placement record.

    In job fair many companies together at one place recruit the candidates for their company. Many organisation and even government organises this job fair. It is beneficial to both the company and the job seekers, as it saves huge cost of company and saves the time of candidate. Even candidate can give interview for more than one company in the same place. Many company selects the candidates there only, while some company may call for another interview. Actually in job fair candidates for lower designated post are immediately selected, while for higher post they may call in company for further round of selection

    Hi. A job fair is a kind of event where multiple companies come to recruit freshers and other students. It is a great opportunity for a student to get a good job in a reputed company.

    The interviews are conducted in the usual way as they are conducted in campus placements. But you should bring multiple resumes here as many companies come on the same day.

    I think if you are not selected in the first round you may or may not get another chance depending if vacancies are left or not.

    Best of luck. Thanks

    Hi,

    Very useful question for all.Thanks for asking.

    Job fair is like whole sale market you can say.In whole sale market they sell products from different vendors.In same way any college or organization act as a market where different company haunt for fresh graduates.

    Many companies at time come to single organization and hire people.

    May be they don't conduct all the screening rounds.But conduct intial rounds to filter and then they will continue with rest of the rounds in their premises.

    But competition will be high in job affair.


    Thanks,

    Hello friends-job fare means some times company people call for recruitment at a specified place where candidates with their resume and original certificates they can assembled to give their zerox copies to the companies who interested to the candidate,later they call for interview.

    Due to various reasons companies can not do recruitment through college campus so that they call for job fair in a particular place where interested candidates subit their testimonials,later they are interviewed.

    Thank you,

    Re: What do you mean by Job Fair? How are interviews taken over there?

    Hello sir

    A career fair is an event where a large number of recruiters and potential employers gather for the purpose of providing information about available positions and their companies in general. It may also be called a job fair, and it can be a great opportunity to learn about a range of possible jobs, and to get a foot in the door.

    For employers, a career fair is a chance to meet large numbers of potential applicants and quickly weed through them to find suitable candidates. College campuses often sponsor career fairs, and they may also be held as community events.
