Ruby Radio's Opportunity Fair 2019

Ruby Radio Presents:      

Opportunity Fair Elko

Thursday, May 16, 2019

at the Elko Conference Center

Our first Opportunity Fair was the largest career event in North­eastern Nevada!  We’re doing it again, with over $150,000 in promotional power.

Elko’s unemployment rate is at an all-time low.  It’s tough to find good people. Local employers need our ability to reach the edges of Elko and Lander Counties.

We know them.  We talk to them every day.  We know they come from every walk of life. And we’ll invite them ALL to Opportunity Fair!

Your potential applicants will hear about Opportunity Fair multiple ways:

  • 6 area radio stations – reaching over 86% of the people in the region
  • com – delivering about 4 million pageviews a year
  • 3 separate email blasts – to 10,000 people per mailing
  • Search engine marketing campaigns throughout the Intermountain West and Northern CA to bring new employees to Elko


Only Opportunity Fair participants can use the discounted follow-up ad plan to continue reaching employment prospects AFTER THE FAIR!  168 MORE ads per week for only $499, up to 4 weeks!  Ask your Ruby Radio rep!

Do you have something to say to these job seekers? 
Would you like to meet them in person?

We can help you do that, with a very cost-effective career event, plus an opportunity to be included in our intense promotional blitz.

Booth holders can also use the deeply discounted event rate for up to 4 weeks After the Fair to cement the connections you made with visitors to continue working with them. This is 36% off our usual rates and only available to Opportunity Fair participants.

Call Ruby Radio at (775) 777-1196 with questions and ideas!

2019 Opportunity Fair Participants ... coming soon.
