Career Expo Exhibitor FAQ

  3. How does Salon Help Wanted advertise for their Career Expos?
    • Every participating company will have their name and website link posted to our event page prior to the expo.

  7. Do all Employers receive resumes from the event?
    • Salon Help Wanted does not provide individual employers with resumes, but all event attendees are strongly encouraged to post their resumes to prior to the event. Employers can view and interact with these resumes any time at no charge.
  8. Do I have to commit to hiring people from the career expo? 
    • No, but we strongly encourage employers to review and collect resumes or applications as your company sees fit and use the networking time with applicants accordingly. Based on feedback  many of the participants appreciated being able to discuss potential opportunities with the company representatives in determining whether they were a good “fit.”
  9. What if I am not hiring, can I still get a booth? 
    • Yes, but we strongly encourage you to consider any applicant who you may meet with that day as a potential hire. While your company may not be hiring at the moment, you may nonetheless meet a potential candidate who would fit well with your company at which you may have a connection.

    • One additional booth space may be added for a small fee.
  11. Do Employers need to pay for parking?
    • Most of our venues do not charge for parking. For the few locations that do, each vendor will be responsible for any fees associated with parking.
  12. Does Salon Help Wanted ever cancel events?
    • It is very rare for us to cancel a career expo. If the weather makes it very challenging to attend an event due to unsafe driving conditions, or a natural disaster occurs, an event may be pushed back and rescheduled.
  13. Can an Employer request a certain location for an event?
    • Depending on your package, some Employers receive priority booth location when purchasing in bulk and when purchasing Co Sponsorships. The earlier an Employer is signed up for an event, the better location they get.
    • We also make sure competitors are not put right next to each other. Employers can request a certain location, and we do our best to accommodate that request, but there are no guaranteed locations.
  14. What should an Employer bring to an event?
    • Salon Help Wanted will provide a 6’ or 8’ table for each client and 2 chairs per table. Each Employer is welcome to bring any other type of table cloth, banner, pop up displays, candy, handouts, literature, product samples, giveaways, balloons or anything else they feel will help make the event be more successful for them.
    • We provide electricity and wi-fi upon request.
    • We reserve the right to reject any object that we feel is dangerous, unethical or offensive. For some guidance on setting up your booth, click here.
  15. What time can Employers set up their booth for their event?
    • Employers will have access to their booth to begin setup 1 hour prior to the start of the expo.
  16. What time can an Employer start breaking down?
    • Salon Help Wanted always requests staying until at least 5 minutes after the expo ends, because many candidates will not be able to make it until the very end. SHW also has been marketing that each Employer will be in attendance, so please make every effort to stay for the duration of the expo.
    • Emergencies do happen, so please find and speak with one of our representatives if you need to breakdown early.
  17. What are the cancelation and no-show refund policies?
    • If an Employer needs to cancel or reschedule an event for any reason, they may do so up to 14 days before the event.

    • There are no refunds on any Co Sponsorship packages.
