It is being held for the fourth year. Last year’s was hailed a success after 1,200 jobseekers turned up.
Adam Parker, 22, was among those who went along and met representatives from IT firm Perfect Image.
After a discussion with them, he left with some information about the company and what they do.
A couple of months later, he saw a job advert on the firm’s website and immediately applied.
It turned out to be one of the best decisions he could have made.
Adam, from Washington , said: "I used all the material they gave me at the jobs fair to help me write my CV specifically for this position and the rest of the application process.
"Since then I have managed to get a job here and I’m now a graduate developer and have been for the last six or seven months.
"I'm really glad that I’m here and don’t want to leave any time soon because the environment and people are great."
