Calling all Veteran job seekers: VA’s Veteran Readiness and Employment (VR&E) Service is proud to announce its very first Veterans’ Virtual Career Fair on Friday, July 30, 2021!
VR&E has partnered with Microsoft Corporation to bring a virtual career fair to Veteran job seekers. The live event will feature 30+ top private and federal employers who are committed to hiring Veterans. Each participating employer will have multiple job openings to fill with Veterans. The primary focus of the fair is computer science, business management, management analysis, information technology (A+, Net +, security +), customer support and software engineer positions. The job openings are nationwide, so there are opportunities for everyone.
Who is Eligible?
Any Veteran who is seeking a career in the computer science, business management, management analysis, information technology (A+, Net +, security +), customer support or software engineering industries.
When is the Event?
The event will be on Friday, July 30 from 12 – 3p.m. EDT.
How to Register?
Veteran job seekers can register online at: MSSA Virtual Hiring Fair (virtualcareerfairs.com)
How does it Work?
Recruiters and employer contacts will have information on open jobs, be able to answer questions and live chat with job seekers. Participants can visit the virtual booths of the hiring employers they are interested in speaking with. Job seekers can visit as many or as few booths as they like. Employer representatives can continue conversations with job seekers even after the job fair is over as the virtual career fair’s connection and features will remain open all day.
What to Expect?
The virtual career fair will look very similar to a real-life, in-person career fair. Veteran job seekers can register and log in at the time of the event. They will enter a virtual hallway to see each employer’s booth. Participants enter a booth where they meet one of the employer’s representatives. Once in the booth, participants can check out the employer’s FAQs, apply to job vacancies, and post general questions in a group chat or directly message the employer.
