Jobs & Job Fairs

Career Fairs or Job fairs are designed to connect job seekers with recruiters who are hiring now or in the near future.  These fairs are special environments in which both candidates and companies have the chance to meet and interact on career opportunities. Thus, both recruiters and candidates can pre-screen each other. Professional recruiters will answer important questions concerning compensation and benefits, training programs, work location and advancement opportunities for the positions involved.

Some of the nation’s most successful companies gather to interview and hire at career or job fairs.  Since attendance is free to the job seeker, this is time well spent because even if you don’t land a job, you’ll get great interviewing practice.

Here are some of the most popular jobs for veterans followed by a listing of top job fairs.
