Not too long ago, we were living in relative darkness and ignorance out here on the East coast. Where, we wondered, could we possibly get information on all the career fairs going on in the rest of the country to pass on to people? Sure, we could Google until our fingers bled, and painstakingly assemble a network of sites to check on a regular basis. Or we could do one Google search, find a site called, and then stop looking. Which is pretty much what we did.*

As far as I can tell, attendance at all nationalcareerfair events is free, and no registration is required with the site to find out about them or attend. For a list of companies attending any of the events listed on the site, you can register here register here, select your events, and they'll send the information right along. Whether or not you want to sign up for partner offers, college information and product updates is, of course, entirely up to you (and how vigilant you are about checking/unchecking boxes).

Anyhow, without further ado, here are the upcoming job fairs from around the country the site has listed for this week:

Monday, July 27, 2009 – Cleveland, OH
Location: Crowne Plaza Hotel Cleveland City Centre, 777 St. Claire Avenue NE, Cleveland, OH 44114

Location: Hartford Marriott Downtown, 200 Columbus Blvd, Hartford, CT 06103
Time: 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

*OK, we haven't really stopped looking. We'll still be combing the web, mining our contacts, and doing all the other things we usually do to bring you the best intel we can on what's out there—not least because the site only covers its own events, and none of the workshops and other career-focused events we usually cover, like the following list of upcoming events in New York City, courtesy of AM New York.
