Career Fairs and Recruitments

Career fairs provide your business with an opportunity to interact one on one with a large group of talented job seekers.  Our goal is to help you make connections to meet the workforce needs of your businesses.

Our Experience:

The New York State Career System organizes and participates in dozens of job and career fairs around New York State each year with little to no cost to participating businesses.  These include:

  • Community events with businesses from specific towns or districts
  • Specialized events with seasonal businesses
  • Events targeting a single industry

Why participate in a career fair?

  • Reduce recruiting time by providing information and answering candidate questions. This ensures that applicants understand your organization and the job opening
  • Reach highly motivated jobseekers proactively pursuing career opportunities

We can help you have a successful career fair experience!
