I've read some of the threads here on Job Fairs. Most of them are very old.
Are they worth doing in 2013? Is there any relevance?
What is the best way to maximize the usefulness ?

My situation:
I'm sitting in a good paying job with a bad company with an eroding revenue base. There have been mergers and acquisitions that turned a lucrative job at a great company into a horrible job at a deteriorating company.
The tools are old and the leadership is scared.
Still, I am not desperate. I hate this job with each passing day, but I'm very needed and it is unlikely that I'll be let go anytime soon. So I'm focused on a good, fundamentally sound job search that ends in a great fit for me, regardless of how long it takes.
