Speed dating job fairs
We've done away with the whistles, name-tags and over the top party trimmings.
Unparalleled service and personable hosts all in an environment - just your speed.

Check out the Linked In Profiles for the employer, the interviewer names (if you have them), and the staff names you find in Linked In and Google.
First, there was speed dating, and now there is speed interviewing.
