We recommend you send a hiring manager and/or HR representative who can answer questions about your open positions, potential future hiring, and the types of jobs you typically have available in general. Only one representative is necessary to successfully participate in this event. If you are actively hiring several positions, we recommend sending two for increased efficiency at your table (as you will likely have a line). Note: Limit one table per company. What can I bring into the event? Bring any relevant company marketing materials, HR hiring/recruiting info, company SWAG, and/or anything related. You are not required to bring any materials, though many of the other exhibiting companies will. Will I have an assigned table? No, tables will be first come, first served. We advise arriving around 8:45-9:00 to set-up for a 9:30 start. What type of career event is this? This career fair is intended to be a networking and career exploration event not necessarily a hiring event. You will not be required to hold interviews on the spot or even have open positions in order to attend. Our goal is to give job seekers exposure to your organizations and, hopefully, help you secure great, solar-interested candidates for your open positions now and in the future. How can I contact the organizer with any questions? You can direct questions to Megan Howes at mhowes@solarfound.org or solartraining@solarfound.org Job Seeker/Student FAQs What should I bring?
