I'd like to add:

Has anyone been hired (or know anyone who's been hired) at a job fair?

My experience with them has been that they are filled with hundreds (and
likely thousands) of people in dark-colored suits, and that you wait in
line for hours to get a handshake and a chance to hand someone your
resume. I've also never seen technical writing jobs available at them (I
went to one on the premise that "if they're looking for engineers and
programmers, they'll be looking for technical writers soon" approach.
I've used this method successfully at some software company open
houses.) Anyway, I never saw a lead from this job fair, and disliked the
whole thing so much I've never tried one again.
