“Employers will have two looks at candidates—during event ‘office hours’ and in follow-up interviews—to assess their skills and culture fit before investing in bringing them in forinterviews,” Folger said.

Here is a timeline for the event:

•Through October 4th, job seekers will navigate through the exhibit hall, downloadmaterials and determine which employers to visit.
