You’d think enticing the right talent to your booth at a career fair would be a piece of cake. But you couldn’t be more wrong! According to a survey conducted by CareerBuilder, 74% of employers plan to hire recent college grads i.e. 7% higher than last year. Due to an increase in hiring opportunities, it is crucial to compete with other companies if you want to recruit the best and the brightest.
46% of HR professionals find employee retention to be their biggest concern. At career fairs, there is a good chance that you might find a candidate who will be an invaluable long-term asset to your team. This makes it even more important that you bring your ‘A’ game.
Promotional products can help you in making that first impression that may lead to a fruitful relationship. Among other benefits, promotional products:
- Amplify your reach
- Draw in prospective job seekers to your booth
- Help you start a conversation
- Serve as reminders of your company
- Indicate your appreciation for your employees
While promotional products are a huge success at career fairs, not all of them will give you the same response. Job seekers associate your company with the giveaways you hand out. It is a good idea to invest in high-value promotional items that will set you apart. Here is a list of products that will make career fairs more memorable for your business:
