Careers Expo = job offer?
Many people head along to a Careers Expo with the expectation of landing themselves with a job offer at the end of it. When this doesn’t happen, they find themselves hugely disappointed and discouraged.
However, they have failed to realise that while a job offer may not be the immediate/direct outcome of attending a Careers Expo, it certainly does help them with their job hunting in the long run. Job offers aside, the face-to-face networking opportunity, the job search advice directly from employers and the information about the career that one wishes to pursue have already make a Careers Expo worthwhile to attend.
Instead of having to knock on the door of each individual organisation, Careers Expos allows its participants the ultimate access to many employers, under one roof at one time. Since somebody else has done all the hard work, pulling together all the valuable contacts, why not make full use of it and save your wild goose chase?
