    Hi Angie,

    I went to the one a few months ago at MSG. I thought it was very helpful and informative. Just get there early and have copies of your resume. Make sure you also keep the guide book as a reference, since they have a list of all the vendors and their contact information.

    Hope this helps,

    The ADVANCE job fair was crowded and not well-run nor layed out...despite the advertisements, there were NO snacks, nor even water---and I mean NO WATER FOUNTAINS--for several hours (they had coffee early on, but that ran out)...they had nothing to even BUY...this poor LPN who was 8-1/2 months pregnant had to PLEAD with the ADVANCE People to let her have some water from the "VENDORS-ONLY" eating area...Disgraceful...hours later, they threw some cases of soda at us...but, hello, we're nurses--stay hydrated with water--not sugar and caffeine and NutraSweet (and don't promise water if there won't be any)...There's a competitor's job fair coming up in NYC on Oct. 11 I believe at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Times square (around 46th St and B'way). Convenient to meet many recruiters in the same place--assuming they will be there....Good luck.
