The overall event for me was not successful as I'm still seeking employment in my field. But the visit was great and I enjoyed the visit very much. The location for an event like this couldn’t be better as subway access is near and many potential leads are all around us.From my observation. There were allot of job seekers and not enough employers looking to actually recruit people ready to work now. I've attended a fair amount of job fairs in my time and can only suggest for an event like this to be bigger in the near future. More business’s need to get involved. If memory serves me right, there were only 9 to 10 booths there and a good percentage were meant for pitching higher education opportunities; which is great but not for everyone. As many people were seeking actual work positions.The Hotel managed booth & Staff were the most professional here, especially when it came down to actually delivering information and overall job seeker engagement was on point. Thank you.

Present yourself to as many recruiters as possible and make sure you have enough resumes. I ran out but still got called the following day, (this morning for a good position). There wasn't any digital marketing, web development, SEO positions but one company seems like they have referred me to their partners.
I went to this job fair hoping to meet employers that were hiring. Instead, I approached stalls only to be told to apply online. I could have done that on my own, especially with recruitment agencies like LRO and Excel HR. I approached the GC Jobs stall to be told how to apply online (something I've been doing for the past few months). Why bother? I thought this event would provide the opportunity for employers to actually sit down with candidates and have, essentially, an interview to determine fit, and then take action from there (at least to get the ball rolling quicker). This was just a meet and greet for no reason. Only one stall took my resume and said she's forward it to her team for consideration.

Not enough recruiters and too many colleges, the few recruiters that were there they were looking for people with such specific qualifications I.e. an English degree to be an office administrator that's just not realistic. I have a degree In sports science but it seems I wasn't even qualified to work for any of these companies, a complete waste of time
