Frequently Asked Questions


How does SpeedHIRE differ from a typical job/career fair?

Most job fairs resemble a cattle call—overflowing with hordes of candidates who are completely inappropriate for your staffing needs. Typically, you end up wasting hours stuck in unproductive conversations with the wrong applicants and return to your office with few, if any, prospects.

What’s more, job fairs are generally dismal for candidates. Although job hunters experience plenty of anxiety,there’s not much dignity in attending these crowded, disorganized events.

SpeedHIRE is different and the ONLY customized, on-site, targeted event of its kind! Our events are fast-paced, ultra-efficient and rewarding for recruiters, hiring managers AND invited candidates. Imagine, staffing experts source and screen candidates who FIT your exacting requirements for your open jobs.  The only SpeedHIRE candidates you’ll meet are those who have been interviewed, screened and are qualified.
