If you're looking for a job or a great candidate to hire, you probably know how difficult it is to find a great match in this competitive economic environment. You can go through countless applications, but there's nothing quite as valuable as a chance to meet with a potential employer or impressive candidate in person. That's precisely why, whether you're looking for your next career opportunity or intend to hire a media and entertainment industry all-star, the NAB Show Career Day is a fantastic place to do just that. 

NAB Show, run by the National Association of Broadcasters; a professional organization representing those who work in radio, film, television, and other forms of broadcasting, is an annual convention and trade show held in Las Vegas. The event includes exhibits from major audio, broadcasting, and entertainment brands as well as educational talks, industry luncheons, networking opportunities, and Pits where you can learn about the latest technologies. 

Trinity Chavez got a dream internship at CBS News after making a connection at NABEF Career Fair
NAB's Career Day is a newer addition to the show and was started by NAB's Education Foundation (NABEF) to help broadcasting companies recruit highly qualified candidates. The Career Fair is the largest one solely focused on broadcasting and attracts media companies and applicants from all over the country. Its employers, which last year included CBS News, Radio One, and Ericsson, among others, represent top broadcasting companies who are recruiting for positions ranging from internships and entry level roles to advanced positions in TV, radio, media sales, and broadcasting technology. In fact, in 2013, one attendee, Trinity Chavez, was lucky enough to score a dream internship at CBS News through a connection she made at NAB Show Career Day. “While [at] the NABEF career fair in Las Vegas," say Chavez, "I met the Director for News Associates and Internship Programs for CBS. She provided me with first-hand knowledge about the broadcast industry and she gave me information about the various internship programs that CBS offers and how to go about applying for them. When the time came, I applied for an internship with CBS in New York and I got it!” If you're looking to find your own career or recruiting success story, then this year's NAB Show Career Fair can. Here's what you need to know to register, stand out, and hopefully give me a reason to write about you or your company's success at NAB Show Career Fair this time next year.
