Virtual Career Fairs Coming For Spouses and Veterans

Are you looking for a job in the United States, but living in Japan?

Fret not. You can make an impression on potential employers from 4,000 miles away - and in your jammies.

UBM Studios/Milicruit , based in Chicago, regularly hosts virtual career fairs to give military spouses and veterans an opportunity to network with companies across the U.S. no matter where they are stationed.

Applicants log on during specific hours to chat with representatives from more than 90 companies. The website is open around the clock for job seekers to check out the companies’ virtual booths and learn more about potential employers.

The next live event happens Oct. 26 from 2 to 4 p.m. eastern standard time. The event will feature companies from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland.  

On Nov. 10, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. eastern standard time, visitors can speak with representatives from companies around the U.S.

It’s important to keep in mind that career fairs are not hiring fairs, a place to conduct interviews or find job offers. Instead, it’s a place to find out more about employers and exchange resumes. Recruiters do, however, notice applicants who take the time to make a solid impression.

Attendees are encouraged to log on before the fair begins and complete their fair profile and post an appropriate photo.
