Socially organizing, participation and supporting Job Fairs is a mandatory obligation of all stakeholders involved towards employment generation in the economy. However, Job Fairs are also viewed with commercial intention by stakeholders for benefits or profits. A commercial approach in such a situation over runs the social patriotic agenda of societal development, economy and manpower development of a country. Though CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) mandates organizations to conduct social activities, sponsoring or holding public job fairs or at least freewill participation in such career fairs as a social responsibility has always remained a rare sight for corporations or employers. Further presence of third-party business-oriented consultants in the market with lobbying tactics has also made government agencies responsible for holding employment fairs enticed towards favouritism. Therefore, this research investigates the differences involved in holding a Social job fair as compared with Commercial motives of participating recruiters in those fairs. The paper also propagates national and international sensitivity towards employment generation by listing out Employers’ positions and standing in job fair participation for social-national-global cause and its importance with relation to CSR.
