I know a couple of gals from Huntington who attended a job fair recently and when I asked them how successful it was or if they landed something, they didn't sound all too enthusiastic about it. One of the gals told me it was a bust, quite literally. In fact, I even think she regretted going to begin with. When I told her about another upcoming job fair and how she should pre-register for it like I did, her response was simple: "I don't know." Guess her thought is if one job fair was a bust, any other one she goes to will be a bust too. With the economy being in the tubes, many people are holding on to their jobs as tight as possible because they know if they just up and leave it'll be a lot harder to find something else. Or worse yet, they may not get rehired. Given that, should we really expect the jobs to be there at the job fairs we attend??? I'll be honest with you all, the jobs really seemed to be dried up right now. I was told at Huntington to go to district so-and-so because they needed people (a parent told our center director that), but whenever I check their employment page there's NOTHING there! (Quite literally, except a notice saying they're hiring bus drivers.) And what little was there I had already applied to only to hear notta back from the district. So in my opinion, they can't need people as badly as I heard they did. Otherwise, they'd have called me in for an interview -- right??? I'm worried when I get a list of positions that are currently open at the job fair it'll be a VERY small list and thus perhaps worth nobody's time and effort.
