The exhibit hall layout offers an ideal setting for meeting and interviewing candidates. In addition, two weeks prior to the fair, all employers will receive a resume book and are encouraged to contact candidates to schedule 15-minute interviews in Recruiter's Row, a section of the Career Fair reserved for employers to meet with candidates in a more private and quiet setting. Register by October 19 for discounted Employer rates!
