There are drive-through restaurants, banks, flu shot clinics and now a drive-through job fair. Clay Seaman is the Delivery Director for “omahajobs.com” and is organizing Wednesday’s event. Seaman says they are spending the day putting informational material from over a dozen companies into bags. That information includes marketing materials, job postings and contact information.
Seaman says all potential employees have to do is drive up, get a bag and review the material at a later time. He says this is especially helpful for those currently employed but looking for a different position and can’t take time off work to attend a traditional job fair.
Seaman has been asked over and over again if job fairs work and if people do get hired. He says all those participating in Wednesday’s Drive-Thru Job Fair are hiring and yes, job fairs are a success.
Seaman says there are hundreds of open full-time and part time openings. Some of the fields are for sales representatives, finance, accounting, legal services, management, marketing, IT, customer service and more.
The Drive-Thru Job Fair is Wednesday, February 1st at the Comfort Inn at 70th and Grover in Omaha from 8am to 3 pm.
