Who We Are...
Our state-sponsored Connecticut Career Fairs
have a history of providing the most results-oriented,
cost-effective career fairs available in Connecticut. In 1996,
the first ever fair hosted 15 companies and slightly over 100
attendees. Today our Connecticut Career Fairs host between 50 -
80 companies, depending on location and venue. The average fee
per booth at our fairs is quite reasonable when compared to the
industry standard. Our fee covers the costs of the fair
including media advertising, printing, mail-outs, booths, and
lunch for employers. Each fair is advertised through radio and
newspaper ads, as well as the Internet.
Our Past Success...
The Spring 2015 Career Fairs,
which took place in Manchester, Danbury, and Cromwell areas,
attracted more than 4,200 attendees. Over the past year we have
assisted more than 10,000 job seekers and hosted over
450 employers. In the interest of those we serve, partnerships
have been developed with local Chambers of Commerce, colleges
and universities, Workforce Investment Boards and
community-based organizations. These partnerships help to
determine the needs of the people in the local area and how we
can meet those needs.
What We Offer...
At each fair, attendees have the chance to meet with prospective employers, and can also take advantage of the following services:
- Nationally certified resume writers available for resume critiquing.
- Access to CT.Jobs, our electronic job matching system, part of the nation’s largest internet employment service.
- Veterans Services Representatives to provide assistance and guidance.
- Information on Educational and Job Training Programs.
- Information on employment and unemployment services.
Since many attendees are employed or not yet displaced from their jobs, we have the opportunity to publicize all our services should they need them.
