May 1, 2012 – (Bingham Farms, MI) -- Synergy held two job fairs recently in their Detroit and Chicago-area offices. Synergy’s first job fairs were held in December of 2011, and were quite successful. The recent April 2012 Job Fairs also yielded good results.
The job fairs have two main objectives. First and foremost, it enables us to reach out to our local community and come face-to-face with I.T. professionals that we may be able to hire now or in the future. Second, it promotes the Synergy brand through a variety of media outlets, and informs the business and tech communities about our company and services.
The Detroit fair was held on 3.29.12 at our Corporate Headquarters and the Chicago fair was held on 4.19.12 at our Lisle, IL office. The fairs attracted 50 candidates and our team of recruiters in both offices conducted immediate interviews and talked with every candidate about current positions and future opportunities.
The fairs were promoted through local TV, radio, newspapers and new media websites, social media sites like Facebook and LinkedIn, and through employment sites, local government sites, and local college career & alumni offices. We found several qualified candidates at the fairs and submitted several for hire. One candidate has been hired so far. Synergy will continue to use these in-house job fairs as an effective way to attract talented candidates to our organization, and to promote the Synergy brand.
