How do our Career Fairs work?
In addition to the digital and print marketing, we go into each class and explain the benefits of attending the Career Fair. We hand out registration cards for the students to fill out their contact information. On the back of their card are numbers. Each table will be assigned a number. When you finish speaking with the student they will hand you their card for you to mark off your table number. When the student returns the card to us and has at least 3 markings they will receive a ticket to get lunch that we provide in a separate room. At the end of the event we will scan the registration cards and email them to you.
How many people should we expect at the event?
Crowd size depends on campus location and weather. Attendances can vary from one hundred to two hundred and fifty.
What does the registration fee include?
Your company logo will be included in all of the print and digital marketing released for that event. Including but not limited to mass emailing, campus location banners, campus classrooms and campus break-rooms during the marketing period. Your logo will also be included on your table tent card the day of the event. You must register and provide your logo before the marketing cutoff date in order to guarantee your logo will be included in print marketing. (See Current Operation Schedule above) In addition, each company will receive two lunch tickets for catered food and we will be offering catered food to all attendees that are in the building attending the event.
What should I bring to the event?
Please feel free to bring flyers, business cards and any other marketing material. You may bring a retractable banner but please no larger than the standard size of 33.5″ x 78.7″ Vertical. Banners or any other signs that need to be affixed to a wall are not allowed. All banners need to be placed behind your table and not in the walkway of the attendees. Your registration includes two attendees from your company. There will be a $50 charge for each additional person.
What size are the tables at the event?
The tables range from a standard five feet long to eight feet long by eighteen inches wide. Gold Coast provides a tablecloth but you are welcome to replace with one of your own. We will also provide two chairs, which is also the limit of how many people per company may attend.
What is the cancellation policy?
You may cancel your spot at the career fair before the logo cut off date (See Current Operation Schedule above) for a full refund. If you cancel after the cut off date for your event, your registration fee will be placed on your account as a credit and will be able to be applied to a future event.
