International Recruitment Fair Opportunities
As you know, we are in the business of promoting and encouraging cultural exchange. Every year Alliance Abroad Group teams up with our Overseas Partner Agencies to host international recruitment fairs. What’s an international recruitment fair? Well, it is an opportunity when a future host company not only interviews international applicants first hand for the Intern, Trainee, or Summer Work Travel placements, but also directly experiences the culture of that country. By traveling, you will be immersed in the local culture; learning about traditional foods, customs, history, architecture and even learn a few new words. We co-facilitate these fairs for a Host Company that has committed to employ or train a large volume of program participants. The minimum requirement is 25-30 participants per program per season.
A typical trip agenda includes the following:
- a day of travel to the destination
- a day as a tourist or cultural day
- either a half day or full day job fair
- and then a day of travel home.
One of the most rewarding parts of attending an international recruitment fair is being able to interview international applicants in person. This is where a recruiter or operational hiring manager can assess a candidate’s English levels, general skill set, and program engagement levels. In addition, this is also a great opportunity to create first impressions of what it’s like to interview with an American employer, brand recognition, and endorse the great things about living in your city and state.
We are in the process of planning trips to the following countries noted below.
