Job Fairs in St. Louis

Well, I will confess that I'm not the biggest fan of Monster. You sign up for those job notifications, and, in my experience at least, they rarely match up with my skills or my industry at all.

BUT, each job search service has it's strengths and weakness, and I will declare, I do love networking events, and Monster is hosting another job fair on February 25th. It will be at the Marriott by Lambert Airport.

Monster also has many articles with advice on how to make your resume and yourself look good and make the desired impression. Follow the links from those pages to check them out.


Now, just for the ladies, Women for Hire is hosting another St. Louis Career Fair.

Yes, we did just have one of these in October of 2007, but, it must have really gone well if they're ready to have another on March 4th, 2008. It will be held at the Frontenac Hilton (double-check your route for detours caused by the I-64/40 closure).

So, head up to the site to see a list of the employers who will be soliciting resumes there. While you're up there, check out the other Women for Hire resources, articles, recordings, etc.


And, even if you're not a St. Louisan, check around Monster and Women for Hire to search for career expos and events a little closer to your home.


If you want to explore other job notification sites, I recommend Indeed.com (check out the job listings and search box over there in the right column of my blog, sign up for specific email alerts through their home page ->).

Yahoo is another option. Sign up for custom searches and check out some advisory articles (resumes, interviews, salaries, networking, education, career mapping, etc).

You can also check out Craigslist for your city. This wouldn't be the first place I'd think of looking, but, you might find something great.

Other sites:
Science Career Net (Science, Technology and Engineering Jobs)
Autodesk Discussion Classifieds
AUGI Career Corner (must be logged in to view)

(find additional services on this list by TenLinks)

Good luck!

I just had to mention it. :-D

I love Women for Hire, and although I'm not currently searching for work myself, I don't mind bringing a little attention to employers looking for quality women in the area.

And I'm thrilled the career expo did well enough to warrant a second appearance here! :-D
