Virtual Job Fairs for Military & Veterans 2024

job fairs military veterans

Virtual job fairs are essential resources for military and veteran job seekers.  They help by connecting you with local or national companies from your home. Companies are looking for college graduates to executive-level professionals.

The virtual job fair is an experience similar to the in-person version. You’ll need to prepare similarly by researching participating companies and preparing updated versions of your resume or CV. You’ll also need online research on the companies you want to land interviews with during the virtual event.

You can also visit our resources page for in-person job fairs for military and veterans.

Getting the Most out of a Virtual Job Fair

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 organizations that will be in attendance. 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 in the event of a one-on-one interview.

Hear Directly from Hiring Managers

Find out what skills and education a hiring manager considers 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 to maintain those connections and grow your network.

Organizations are Eager to Hire Military and Veterans

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