Google career fair or job fair with your zipcode and different things should pop up. Also use the links below or Hotjobs.com. You have to just get creative when you google things sometimes if you word something different ways different things will pop up for you...good luck!

I've gone through many career fairs and I never once got a job from there. Next time I should just do it for fun in a nice skirt suit in drag, cuz I don't have hopes of getting hired. IT career fairs used to be hot with so many jobs and held often back in 1999 - now they're nonexistant.

Jesse69,

I am also looking for a job, and your idea of attending "for fun in a nice skirt suit in drag" made me smile. Thanks for brightening my day!

Regards,

sounds like a good business idea if you ask me. Something a long the lines of what you would see on borat. Just go to the career fair and get a buddy to film you. Put your video on youtube and have people go back to your main site. You could go up to people and ask them what type of person they are looking for and if they would accept a person like you. It would be funny as hell.
