Career Fair Broadsheet

Prior to the Snohomish County Career Fair, the Career Fair Broadsheet section is published in The Daily Herald. This is a pull-out (approximate 6-page) section dedicated to Career Fair information, including display advertisements for each of our Career Fair Employers. Your display advertisement should be focused on drawing job seekers to your booth at the Career Fair and/or applying for a position with your organization outside of the event.

To have your advertisement included in this section, The Daily Herald must receive your registration payment and ad information on or before Friday, April 14, 2023.

The online job posting package will be placed on your PNW Careers Employer Account after Friday, April 28, 2023, so long as your registration payment has been received.

Job-Seeker Attendance

The Career Fair is highly advertised through multiple channels, however, attendance level cannot be guaranteed by the Organizer. The anticipated number of job-seekers expected is based on prior Fairs’ average attendance.


The event area is a large, open space, and can become fairly loud with the large number of attendees. Music will not be played overhead, as it would cause a disruption to conversations between you and job-seekers. You are, however, allowed to play music or other sounds at your booth, provided it is kept at an acceptable level so as not to disrupt event activity and surrounding booths.

Complimentary Booths

A select few Employers/Exhibitors may be invited to attend the Career Fair at no charge, in exchange for providing a service to job-seekers or the Fair. These Terms & Conditions also apply to those invited to attend for free.


The Snohomish County Career Fair organizers are prohibited from discriminating against any individual on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, political affiliation or belief. This event is open only to those employers whose practices are consistent with this policy, as well as all applicable laws and regulations governing employment discrimination.

Employer No-Show

Organizations that do not check-in by 9:30 a.m. on the day of the event will be considered a “no show” and their booth may be reassigned. The registration fee will not be refunded or credited toward any future event.

Unforeseen Circumstances

Any unforeseen events, inconveniences, weather conditions, etc. beyond the control of the Organizer, that may cause the Fair to be postponed, abandoned or altered in any way, or if the Organizer finds it necessary to change the dates of the Fair, the Organizer will not be liable for any expenditure, damage or loss incurred by the Employer.

If by postponement the Fair can still take place, the contract (Registration Form) between the Organizer and the Employer must remain in force. The Employer will not be eligible for any refund whatsoever by Fair Management, and will not receive reimbursement if the Employer incurred additional costs associated with the Fair (travel and hotel expenses, damages, loss, shipping and handling, etc.).
