Overview: Whether you're a prospective employee or a company seeking new hires, organizing a career fair is more within reach than you might assume. Being an organizer has the added benefits of a great reason to contact and meet recruiters and leads at many local studios, and for prospective employees to learn who you are. Our local IGDA chapter in LA built on notes from IGDA Seattle about their career fair, adding multiple innovations that improved the overall experience without adding substantially to the cost. We'll walk you through our process, strategies, and outcomes, sharing every form used and examples from our communications, so that you'll be better equipped to plan and execute on a career fair of your own. It can be massively beneficial for your local studios, developers, and you as one of the organizers. Questions welcome, we'd love to hear about your experiences with career fairs!
