How Do Employers Get Good Lead Generation at Church Job Fairs?

As an employer at a career fair, your goal is to meet job seekers who can be valuable members of your company’s team.

But if you have ever attended a career fair, you know how crowded, loud, and chaotic these events can be.

 


As an employer at a career fair, your goal is to meet job seekers who can be valuable members of your company’s team.

But if you have ever attended a career fair, you know how crowded, loud, and chaotic these events can be.

Hundreds of job seekers fill the rows of employers, each trying to market themselves to the available job recruiters.

As career hopefuls crowd each employer’s table, the chances of making a real connection or having a meaningful conversation quickly dwindle. The resumes stack up, your hand cramps from shaking too many hands, and you wonder if job fairs are even worth the time, energy, and money required.

Instead, what if job seekers entered the fair in groups of 20-25? Would this small change make a difference?

For an employer at a church job fair held at The Lamb’s Fellowship Church, the use of this format made all the difference.

“Every time we come to one of the church job fairs, they’re really good,” she said. “The crowd is really different than any other career fair I’ve ever been to. They’re very positive. They come in in nice groups, which is really nice as well. I really enjoy that.”

With these small-sized groups, employers and job recruiters can have in-depth conversations with every job seeker and get to ask the questions that matter. Instead of spending hours looking through resumes and trying to match names to faces, you can get to know your candidates in person. According to Westcliff University's recruiter, she never leaves a church job fair without potential applicants.   View the video on our YouTube account.

“I always get really good lead generation and qualified candidates that come,” she said. “So we really enjoy it.”
