Let's consider Job Fairs. A job fair allows you to investigate multiple businesses and job opportunities in a single event. These events may be tied to a specific industry or skill type or a cross section of diverse opportunities. Please remember that job fairs can augment but do not replace our other types of events which promote you in your job search. Job fairs do not have a high reputation for connecting the participants to actual jobs.
I would suggest that a job fair, at its best, gives you a place to practice talking with HR and hiring professionals. With this in mind, attending a job fair with firms you are not really interested in can give you a freedom to try different responses to the hiring questions and see the type of response you receive. This can help you refine your strategy for responding in the interviews you secure through your networking efforts.
