Lammers, Gale; Gregory, B. J., Ed.
This publication provides a description of the Phillips Community College (Arkansas) multipurpose career fair as well as a step-by-step planning and implementation guide for putting on a career fair.

Students can showcase their skills to potential employers, and representatives from area businesses, industries, universities, and the military are given the opportunity to make contact with potential employees and students and to showcase their businesses, services, or institutions. This guide includes a planning calendar with detailed activities for every month leading up to the career fair, suggestions for partners who may wish to provide booths and bring clients, and outcomes for each constituency. Most of the publication consists of samples of program materials, such as early notifications, invitations to various groups, confirmations, reminders, descriptions of college showcases, volunteer assignment sheets, publicity, sign-in sheets, newspaper coverage of the career fair, and thank-you letters and memoranda.
