Because the event is co-sponsored by Intu Watford and Camelot, both exhibiting and attending the Fair is free of charge.
The annual Jobs Fair is a rare chance to meet face to face with numerous business leaders, ask them questions, introduce yourself and get a better understanding of the job opportunities in Watford. As well as visiting business stalls, there will be a range of workshops and seminars designed to help you gain and enhance the skills you need to look for and find your future career.

Preparing for the Fair
It’s an event that those looking for jobs can’t miss. To prepare, you should look into which businesses and jobs interest you and research them beforehand. You will want to print out and bring several copies of your CV to give to employers. Decide what questions you want to ask, what experiences you can draw upon and what you want to convey to people at the Fair; be confident and treat conversations as opportunities for future jobs.
