for Being a Stellar Exhibitor
at the Devex Career Forum
Are you really ready
to meet with job seekers
at the Devex Career Forum?
Use these quick tips to become the
kind of exhibitor that everyone wants
to talk to.
You already know that job seekers are excited to meet with recruiters to learn
about the hiring process, but many of them would like to meet with your program
staﬀ and technical experts too.
Round out your team with representatives from all sides of your organization to
give candidates a broader perspective and understanding of your work.
Leave the interns behind
The number one complaint we hear from career fair attendees is that some
employers were only represented by interns who couldn’t answer their questions
about the organization.
We understand that development workers are busy, but try to bring only senior-level
delegates, or plan to rotate staﬀ out in shifts throughout the day.
Make the most of the networking reception
Yes, you will be tired, your feet will ache and your voice may be hoarse from talking all
day. However, if you can push through to the networking reception you may find some of
your most valuable conversations and connections made through this more informal part
of the event.
Plus, after a long day you deserve a drink!
For the ladies:
Flats or comfortable shoes will be your friends. If you aren't keen
on wearing them throughout the day, at least throw a pair in
your bag as backup (your feet will thank you later).
