Tips for Employers at the Bergen County Job Fair
Our goal is to help you reach the greatest number prospective employees in a single day. To make the most of this opportunity, we suggest the following:
- Be sure to complete your registration form fully, carefully, and according to directions; as this is what will be shared with job seekers online.
- Arrive early…but not too early. Doors open for employer setup at 7:30 a.m.
- To be fair to all that attend, please try not to leave the job fair early. You may miss meeting you next best employee.
- Your display should fit on or in front of a six-foot table. We expect a lot of employers and job seekers, so we encourage employers to make the most of their space.
- People attend job fairs to interact with employers and to learn things they cannot find out online. Bringing literature about your company, website information, copies of job descriptions, and business cards are ideal for a job fair.
- You will be given a job fair assessment survey. Please be sure to complete it. The more candid the answer the better able we will be able to improve our next job fair.

Do I need to register in advance?
Yes. All representatives must be registered prior to the event. Feel free to rotate representatives in and out throughout the day.
