RecruitMilitary is hosting a job fair this coming Thursday, Feb. 2 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Iron Mike Conference & Catering Center on Fort Bragg sponsored by Disabled American Veterans.

RecruitMilitary Program Outreach Coordinator Carol Hymes shared additional details about the event with GFBJ.

“I’m a veteran myself. When I transitioned three years ago…it’s a scary thing to venture out into the world after you’ve served for so many years in the military, you come out and you don't know what is expected. But what I most love about RecruitMilitary is its military centric. Most of the hiring managers and recruiters that are present have some background in [the] military, so they can relate to one another,” remarked Hymes.

There are currently 58 exhibitors registered for the fair. Hymes shared that some of these exhibitors are the USAA, the CIA, the Pentagon Force Protection Agency, General Dynamics Information Technology and Airstream Renewables.

“It is more than an informational seminar. They will connect with the hiring managers and or recruiters, there are some times where they hold interviews on the spot. So we often tell the candidates when they come be prepared for your 30 second elevator pitch to be received. You may be required to do an interview. So we'd like for them to come as if today was your interview. Although it's a job fair. You may be called to do an interview as well,” shared Hymes.

RecruitMilitary’s tips for success include:

  • Dress professionally
    Present yourself with confidence
    Ask questions about specific roles 
    Keep an open mind

RecruitMilitary’s mission is to empower all veterans with meaningful employment opportunities through career resources including an online job board, networking opportunities, and hiring events.
