Job Fair Planning and Execution
Our Job Fairs connect employers with a diverse population of applicants from all skill levels. Our mission is to help contractors excel by attracting and retaining local skilled talent.

As attendees register for the Job Fair, Conrad & Associates will create a Walk-On list of applicants to be rotated to all contractors before mobilizing onsite.
