If a resume writer or career coach is looking to meet high-volume prospects face-to-face there is no better opportunity than at a job fair. The fact that it is at no cost to CDI members makes it a can’t-miss opportunity.
Melbourne, Florida (PRWEB) February 05, 2014
For the tenth consecutive year, Career Directors International (CDI) is able to again offer complimentary booth space at job fairs, speaking engagement opportunities at industry conferences, and paid resume critiques to the career industry’s resume writers and career coaches.
As a popular method for connecting job seekers with employers both large and small, an industry has been built to host job fairs to meet these needs. CDI began partnering with National Career Fairs in 2009 as one of the first of its kind to offer fairs in major cities across the U.S. A few years later CDI built a relationship with Coast to Coast Career Fairs with the same premise. For 2014, CDI is excited to announce a new alliance with CloudHire, an organization that hosts virtual job fairs for cities located throughout the United States.
The process for resume writers and career coaches is simple – members of CDI can occupy complimentary booth space, valued at $1200+ at any of over 300 events annually on a first-come-first-serve basis. In exchange for this face-time and visibility with job seekers, the participants will provide free resume critiques and impart job search advice.
CDI President, Laura DeCarlo, who built her initial private practice with job fair participation states, “If a resume writer or career coach is looking to meet a high volume of prospects face-to-face, there is no better opportunity than at a job fair. The fact that it is at no cost to CDI members makes it a can’t-miss opportunity.”
DeCarlo also added that there are techniques to making job fairs work for the individual and that CDI offers this instruction to members at no cost via on-demand teleclass to ensure their members understand how to use job fairs effectively as a business-building technique.
Currently, CDI has posted links to the schedules for opportunities with partners National Career Fairs, Coast to Coast Career Fairs, and CloudHire within their membership section. Additional opportunities at conferences and major newspaper events will be posted as they come available.
