The last one of these guys I attended was hilarious. It was shortly after the dot-com bubble burst, and consisted of a handful of companies actually looking for workers, and about as many resume writing services and so on looking for customers.

Every one of the hiring companies had a big sign saying that they were not hiring any H1-B visa applicants. And every one of them had a huge line of foreign workers with H1-B visas waiting ignoring it until getting to the front of the line and being told the same thing verbally, yes, they really meant it, and all the others stubbornly remaining in line as if when it was their turn they would suddenly be told they were going to be the only exception.

The only table where anyone was interested was a headhunting firm that was taking down detailed lists of all the places the job seekers had already applied, and showing little or no interest in those workers other "qualifications", claiming it was to prevent themselves from reapplying workers for jobs they had already applied for, but in fact obviously gathering lists of potential customers they would send their workers to as well in competition with those making the mistake of giving them the data.

Fat, old, and willing to work for 1974 wages?!

Enjoy the serfdom, serfs!

Why is this greenlit again?  Are job fairs uncommon or am I missing something else from the article?  In my city there are several job fairs a year with all kinds of employers from insurance companies and banks to the military to McDonald's.

Not only are there no roads out but it's also hard as hell to get to Shell Beach.

This is Fark making fun of Idaho being a rural hick state. Boise has barely over 200,000 people in it (urban Honolulu has almost twice as many, and howdy neighbor), and in all, Idaho has only about a quarter million more people than Hawaii, but spread over eight times the area-with attendant absence of commercial density over most of it.
It's like saying there's a job fair on Molokai.
