    The Admiral said "Last one I went to I had 50 resumes.

    I went home with 50 resumes.

    Every single employer there was not hiring, or reverting back to their website where they had listings, but no jobs".

    TheAdmiral, that is pitiful. Why on earth will they waste time and others time for coming out if they wasn't hiring? If I had attended, I would have asked the sponsors of the job fair why have those companies or organizations there. I probably would have asked the company or organization (in a polite and professional way) why were they there if they wasn't hiring.

    Last one I went to I had 50 resumes.

    I went home with 50 resumes.

    Every single employer there was not hiring, or reverting back to their website where they had listings, but no jobs.

    I assume that this one will be the same.
