When choosing an international job fair, be sure to review the organization sponsoring the fair, the participants, as well as the industry or industries targeted by the fair. You should also investigate what types of pre-fair services are available to attendees, such as resume posting services that can allow you to connect with potential employers and secure a job interview. Other considerations should include the costs of attending the fair, which may include a registration fee as well as housing, transportation, and meals.

If you are interested in working overseas, an international job fair can offer you the opportunity of speaking with representatives from a variety of employers from around the world. In general, these representatives will speak the language of the country in which the job fair is held. This can make it easy for you to make connections with companies that are located far from your home country without concerns about time changes or language barriers.

As you begin your search for an international job fair, keep in mind that many job fairs target employers and candidates from specific industries and professions. Review information about the event either at its website or through printed literature to determine whether you are interested in or qualified to work for the attending employers. Request a list of the companies that will be sending representatives to the job fair and do some research on those companies that interest you. Not only will this help you decide whether the event is worth attending, but if you manage to get an interview with any of these companies you can impress them with your knowledge of their operations.

Visit the job fair's website to find out if it is possible to begin making connections with potential employers before the actual job fair. This can be important if you hope to interview with employers during the fair. You may be able to forward your resume to various companies and schedule time to spend with them while they are in town. Be cautious about spending a lot of money to attend an international job fair. If your heart is set on working overseas, it may be worth it to travel to a job fair, but you may find that other methods of contacting potential employers are just as effective at getting you a job while also being less expensive.

WiseGEEK is dedicated to providing accurate and trustworthy information. We carefully select reputable sources and employ a rigorous fact-checking process to maintain the highest standards. To learn more about our commitment to accuracy, read our editorial process.
