    Does anyone go to job fairs?

    I remember a while back the organization rented out a hotel, and there were lots of companies attending these things.

    What they didn't tell us was that many of these positions were chitty sales and insurance agent openings.

    Are these the majority of job fairs?

    I don't know. Job agencies are complete scams in my experience. They offer the worst of the worst jobs.

    And they always force you to drive to their headquarters for a bullchit interview for the lolz.

    Then they constantly bombard you with chit positions. One time I interviewed for this accounting outsourcing company through a recruiter. Obviously I was rejected, but the recruiter called me the next week telling me he had this "amazing opportunity...cash injection...blah blah blah" and it turns out it's th same ****ing company.

    I was like wtf, and they cancelled the interview on me on the same day. LMAO no idea why they are afraid of giving me the job ad too early if I already accepted the interview. Fuking idiots.

    It depends, I wouldn't expect my dream job from a staffing agency unless I was super qualified and getting head hunted by an agent but at the same time if you don't have experience or you need to start working right away for whatever reason they can certainly help you get your foot in the door potentially help you start earning money faster then applying and interview for months and sometimes they can actually get you into some decent roles I think it really depends on the quality of the agency and the type of position you want along with the location SRS.

    If you have a degree especially an accounting degree it really shouldn't be to hard for you SRS.

    As for the job fairs that could be in someways potentially a step above an agency if you can find some quality ones in your area.

    According to r/NEET you should just fake Autism and PTSD and get welfare + disability and probably make almost the same money. Biden's America.


    If somehow screwing over taxpayers doesn't appeal and you got a degree then there's r/TEFL but not sure how many do that as a lifer anymore.

    I'm not struggling for work right now.

    I remember back in th day going to job fairs, and that they mostly sucked.


    I got a pretty good job (not through a job fair) that is 100% remote.

    I had an interview from a job fair (read: sales pitch) for some chitty insurance gig that was at 8AM on a Saturday. If that's when they want to impress you, imagine the hours they'd have you work once you're on the inside.

    I've been to only one job fair that wasn't affiliated with my schools that I attended. Pretty much just insurance companies, Primerica, and a bunch of tradie jobs.

    In college I went to 2. One was accounting networking night - got an interview from it but didn't get the job.

    Then the other was a generic business job fair with a bunch of chit sales or manager jobs like that.

    Ended up getting my first internship and full time job through just applying on my school's internship portal.
