How to find qualified staff

mac the trade fair experts

Current studies confirm that job fairs are becoming important recruiting tools. According to the study Recruiting Trends 2017 by Staufenbiel Institut and Kienbaum, 71 percent of surveyed companies use career events and fairs to find new hires.    

mac too has taken up the subject from a few different angles. We’re active on behalf of our customers and, as an employer, we take part in job fairs to attract potential new employees.   

The advantages over other recruiting channels are obvious. For one thing, there is less wasted effort with the target group assembled in one place. New companies and start-ups can increase their name recognition with potential applicants while large, well-known firms can solidify their image and corporate philosophy. Employers can often tell quickly from the initial contact whether the applicant fits the company and satisfies the requirements for the advertised job opening.

Which job fair has the greatest potential for exhibitors depends on the targeted applicant profile. At classic job exchanges, you can be sure that visitors go to the fair with the intention of finding a job. However, companies generally encounter recent graduates and beginners at such fairs, which are not limited to a specific industry.  

In recent years, therefore, large specialized trade fairs have offered “Job & Career” areas as an alternative channel. For example, mac has worked as a partner to spring messe Management to build booths for those areas at CeBit and Hannover Messe. Thanks to the specialized nature of those fairs, exhibitors can be sure that they will meet industry experts. They also are more likely to find potential recruits with job experience.

Whether you’re looking for experienced specialists or highly motivated beginners, there’s a fitting event for every personnel search.
