This evaluation describes the development of an internet version of a career fair. The 'internet career fair' was developed in response to the growing demand for e-recruitment in the graduate employment market, and the need to provide employment related career services to external university students. In order to conserve resources and to assess what could be achieved with limited resources, the development process took a 'minimalist' approach based on static web pages, rather than a virtual chatroom approach. Twenty major employers registered with the internet career fair. The site attracted over 61000 hits from the student body. It was recommended that the minimalist approach be retained for future internet career fairs.
