Milicruit Virtual Career Fair for Veterans

July 25, 2011 | By paulchen
Are you a Service member on the West Coast looking for a job? Milicruit, the recognized leader in career fairs for veterans, will be hosting a regional virtual career fair for California, Oregon and Washington on Thursday, July 28, 2011. The event will focus only on the West Coast states, and will allow employers to focus their search in that market. This event is just the first of many regionally-focused career fairs Milicruit has planned. “We could not be happier to launch the Milicruit regional career fairs with the West Coast event, and with over 7,000 veterans and spouses registered in the states we will focus on, it only made sense to look at that region first,” said Kevin O’Brien, vice president of Business Development for UBM Studios. “We have also listened to our employer partners, and the West Coast is an area where many of our employer partners have pressing needs. We look forward to hosting the event next week, and to future regions the rest of the year.” The regional virtual career fair will allow employers to meet with veterans who reside in California, Oregon or Washington, but more importantly, it will also allow active duty Service members, veterans and spouses who may be moving to that region the same opportunity to meet with employers who have needs on the West Coast, without having to travel to the region for interviews. “With more than 4,000 jobs available with the employers who will be exhibiting in the career fair, the West Coast event is sure to be a great way for veterans and military spouses to secure employment in the West Coast region,” O’Brien said. Employers, veterans and military spouses interested in participating can register at In the online Milicruit environment, participants can build a profile including a resume and picture, visit employer booths, view and apply for jobs, and chat with recruiters directly, all from the comfort and convenience of home or wherever else they may be. Veterans and military spouses can also use the Milicruit environment to research companies, view and apply for jobs, and send recruiters messages directly even when the recruiter is not online and a career fair is not going on.
