It's where a bunch of out-of-work, er...potential employees (hundreds) get together and invite companies (dozens) to show up and look at their resumes and chat.

I wouldn't think they'd be terribly effective in this market, since employers are deluged with resumes as it is.  They were big right after the bubble burst, when big companies were starting to unload and smaller companies still thought they need to actively recruit. 

I was very disappointed when I found out what the definition was, though.  A reverse career sounded like something I'd be very interested in.

Really? Surely a reverse career is paying someone to work for them? On second thoughts, i'm more on the employer side these days... Ooh, what a good idea.
