Attendance at the Veterans Career Hiring Expo is free and open to Veterans and active duty military.
The CareerBuilder Professional Team will provide resources to attract Veterans who are interested in exploring new career opportunities. They will also provide specific sourcing and screening services where Veterans will be paired with prospective employers based on profiles they are interested in hiring. CareerBuilder will provide full management and facilitation at the Veterans Career Hiring Expo and an opportunity for 1 on 1 interviews on site.
