Smith & Solomon’s Vendor Attendance at Job Fair Doubles from 2013
Linden, New Jersey, May 14, 2014: After months of preparation and much anticipation, it was with great satisfaction that Smith & Solomon’s Annual Job Fair exceeded their own expectations, as well as those of the companies that were in attendance. The turnout of attendance between companies and the public was a success. In comparison to last year’s event, the attendance of vendors had almost doubled, as the need for drivers also continues to increase at a staggering rate.
Interestingly, the public widely varied with people who are current CDL holders, as well as Non-CDL holders who were interested in obtaining information about the programs offered. For those who do not have a commercial driver’s license, the job fair event served as a perfect catalyst to demonstrate the validity of the need for drivers. The event also served those who are employed in the trucking industry with opportunities that would promote them to a better position and salary. Many of the CDL holders who attended were impressed by the amount of vendors that were present versus other job fairs they’ve experienced. Additionally, their attendance at the event served as an initial interview with the companies that in turn, resulted in second interviews to begin the hiring process for them.
One of the primary goals Smith & Solomon thrive to achieve during this event is to meet the expectations of the attending companies that are looking to fill positions. From a smooth registration process, communications before the event, parking, space, meals and most importantly, a significant amount of candidates who are eligible for hire and prepared, Smith & Solomon were given excellent reviews on their vendor feedback survey. The only problem that ensued was the vendor employment applications that depleted, and that was a good problem to have.
