Five Reasons to Attend The MOAA Virtual Career Fair

By Christine Rebhorn, MOAA Career Transition Services

Here are five reasons you don't want to miss MOAA's Virtual Career Fair on Wednesday, June 20, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. EDT.

1. Save on time and travel: Do you want to meet employers, but have limited time? MOAA knows virtual career fairs effectively connect talented currently serving servicemembers and veterans with great companies that value your skills and experience - all from the comfort of your home, office, or mobile device!

2. Employers are looking for you: The number one question MOAA gets from employers is “How can I connect with and engage with transitioning military members, veterans seeking career advancement and military spouses to share our exciting career opportunities?” Well, MOAA invested in this type of platform to facilitate and support just that type of engagement. Networking is going to be the key to your success. This is your chance to engage directly with human resource specialists, company recruiters, and hiring managers to get to know them before you send in a cold resume through job board, search engine, or company website.

3.Free resume critiques: Speaking of resumes - MOAA career transition experts will offer a free resume critique to all participants during the event. Be sure to visit MOAA's Resume Critique booth!

4. Nationwide opportunities: Looking to connect with employers who aren't in your location? Or are you willing to relocate to another area for the best-fit job? The employers at MOAA's VCF are looking for candidates throughout the country to fill vacant positions from across the public, private, and nonprofit sectors.

5. What's to lose: MOAA's virtual career fair is free and open to all job-seeking service members, veterans, and military spouses. Space in these virtual events is limited so register today.
