Job fairs are an exciting time for students who are just leaving school and entering the labour market. It’s also a great opportunity for companies to attract bright new talent. If you have a small lesser-known company you will have to pull out all the stops to give your self a chance of attracting some promising candidates especially since you might find yourself competing against some of the bigger fish in the field.
A job fair is also a great opportunity for your company to market itself and make it known that you are a contender in the industry. Being known as a desirable employer will be good for your corporate image because it gives you an opportunity to choose your team from a bigger pool of applicants. Therefore here are a few steps you can take to prepare your company for the next local job fair.
Have your presentation ready
Students will come for these events with hopes of finding out what kinds of fields they are interested in working in. Therefore you will have to prepare a small presentation to show them why a career at your company is something they should consider. Tell them about what the corporate culture at your company will be like, and what the career development is. They will also want to know what kind of qualifications they need to go up the corporate ladder in that field so have someone who is knowledgeable enough to answer these questions.
Hand out some little souvenirs
Once they listen to your presentation you can give them some corporate gifts in Singapore as souvenirs. This will make their visit to their stall be a little more memorable. There are many things you can hand out for this purpose. They can be pens or other stationery items with the company name printed on them. You can also print contact information such as the company email address or telephone number so that student can use that information should they wish to know more about applying for internships and other learning opportunities you can make available to them.
Find a cheap corporate gifts supplier from whom you can get these items personalised and manufactured. Make sure it’s something inexpensive so that they can be handed out freely to everyone who visits your stall.
Decorate your stall accordingly
When you are preparing for the job fair you should also put some thought into the way you decorate your stall. It should have a certain level of professionalism but also be attractive enough to make students want to approach it and find out more about what you do.
