The Value in Military and Veteran Virtual Job Fairs

Virtual career fairs often consist of:

  • Company presentations
  • Descriptions of open positions
  • One-on-one time with hiring managers
  • On-the-spot interviews

Free Preparation Assistance

When organizations and agencies host virtual career fairs, they want everyone to benefit, so they provide additional resources. Some of these free resources include resume writing and interview preparation before the virtual career fair begins. Taking advantage of these free resources is extremely beneficial, so you are prepared for an immediate interview.

Know Which Organizations Will Be There

Most career fair registration pages also contain access to a list of what organizations will be in attendance. This is a helpful tool in deciding if this particular virtual career fair is right for you. Knowing which organizations will be attending the event gives you a chance to research the company ahead of time.  Then you will also want to research their open positions as well in the event of a one-on-one interview.

Hear Directly from Hiring Managers

This is a great opportunity to hear from hiring managers.  You can find out what skills and education they are looking for or would consider for certain positions. Being able to connect with hiring managers one-on-one will allow you to gain an understanding of what they’re looking for.  This may include what they’re looking for on resumes and cover letters.

Build Connections

Building connections with prospective employers could give you a leg up during the hiring process. Make sure to connect with hiring managers or company presenters through LinkedIn.  You can also exchange E-mails in order to maintain those connections and grow your network.

Organizations are Eager to Hire Military and Veterans

Organizations attending career fairs have open positions they are looking to fill or are collecting applications for positions opening soon. There are many benefits to attending a virtual career fair.  A major one is not wasting your time applying for positions that have already been filled.  This can occur sometimes with job postings if they’re not updated regularly.

By preparing ahead of time for a virtual career fair, you can increase your chances of getting hired.  Beforehand, make sure to take advantage of resume writing tips and interview preparation. Give yourself a competitive advantage by researching what organizations will be there and focusing on building connections.
