Answers to common questions

What is a RecruitMilitary Job Fair?

A RecruitMilitary Job Fair is an event where job seekers with military experience can meet with recruiters from local and national companies. These events are free for U.S veterans, military spouses, transitioning military, and members of the Guard and Reserve.

Who are the exhibitors?

RecruitMilitary’s events are enhanced job fairs or career fairs with various types of exhibitors.

  1. Employers
  2. Franchisors
  3. Educational institutions
  4. Veterans’ associations and service agencies
  5. Government agencies
What should I expect at the event?

RecruitMilitary Job Fairs are now low-paper and low-contact. At the very least, all events will include:

  • Contact-free check-in
  • Spaced booths
  • Continuous one-way foot traffic flow

Note: Do not bring your paper resume to this event. We have a system in place for you to share your interest and experience with exhibitors.

Masks: At this time, many venues require masks for indoor events. RecruitMilitary is closely adhering to venue regulations. Please bring a CDC approved face mask (not a face shield or gaiter) to this event.

Traffic Flow: At the event, we encourage job seekers to proceed to booths for interation in a continuous loop until you meet all exhibitors of interest. This may mean you will circle through more than once.

For more job-seeker information about in-person event updates, including what to wear and how to prep, see the FAQ.

Should I bring copies of my resume to the event?
No. At this low-paper event, you will share your interest and resume via QR code, which links directly to your RecruitMilitary job board profile. You will receive your QR code when you check in to the event. Important: Make sure to complete your RecruitMilitary job board profile by completing all of the possible fields and uploading your resume in advance. If you do not have a resume, our job board can help you build one to share with exhibitors at the event.
