Provide students an opportunity to network face-to-face with companies that otherwise they would not ever contact. To ease the fears of these college students that they can get a great job by offering opportunities to find employment with the companies attending. As a result, the attending companies can more accurately screen out the candidates that they want because the students will be relaxed and themselves.
The project benefits the attending companies because they find profitable employees without spending money to search for them. Also, it saves them money because of the date of the event being after the job fair. This project also benefits the students by bringing influential companies to them and provides insight on how they expect potential employees to be. The advice they will get will help them be successful regardless.
They would be taught ways to find jobs in large corporations, handle conflict problems such as mock customers, and solve problems that they would encounter in the workplace based on the genre of the company. A section of the round-table discussions will be a group situational mock interview.
This project has the potential to impact 8000 students.
