If you’re looking for your next big career move, job fairs and career expos can help give you the leg up that you need. Beyond simply meeting the right people, these events can provide insider knowledge, fantastic resources, and even help you practice for future interviews. Additionally, they can help you figure out whether your career dreams are exactly what you thought they would be.
During 2020 and 2021, career fairs came to a screeching halt and then pivoted to being virtual. While many career fairs have stayed virtual, there has been a slow shift back to in-person career fairs, especially for organization-specific hiring events. We’re going to highlight a little bit of both in this list of upcoming job fairs in Huntsville, AL.
