What type of recruiters attend a veteran career fair?
When attending a veteran career fair, keep an open mind. There are a wide variety of exhibitors attending our events -- corporate employers, law-enforcement agencies and other government employers, franchisers, and both campus-based and online educational institutions.
The corporate employers are engaged in defense contracting, energy production, manufacturing, security, transportation, engineering, health care, finance, insurance, information technology, retail, and home services, to name just a few industries. Their recruiters interview for all kinds of jobs: salaried, hourly, and part-time; professional and technical. Be sure to talk to everyone as you do not know what's available until you do.
Although the exhibitors work in many different industries, all of them share one characteristic: an eagerness to recruit men and women who have military backgrounds. So step right up and present yourself!
