Experts say the sound of silence is what most job-seekers hear after applying for work online, and that can be deafening.
Job experts say it's important to put yourself out there and meet face-to-face with employers, and the ABC7-Job Journal job fair in San Jose gave prospective employees the opportunity to do just that.
Companies say the opportunity to meet with job seekers provides them with the ability to have a conversation, and that reveals much more than a resume can do alone.
For those who couldn't make it to Thursday's job fair, the Job Journal will host a virtual fair online that starts on Friday at JobJournal.com. The companies that were present at Thursday's job fair in San Jose will also take part in the online version.
