Event Description

On July 30th, VRS in partnership with the White House Joining Forces initiative will host the next installment of the VRS virtual career fair www.veteranrecruiting.com

The VRS fairs are an outstanding way for veterans to meet live with employers from all across the country, but without the need to travel to a physical location. Since September 2011, more than 24,000 veterans have been hired by the employers and government agencies who participate in the VRS virtual career fairs, and we are aiming for 50,000 additional by 2018.

More than 30 leading employers who represent over 40,000 jobs will be in attendance on July 30th, but the VRS virtual career fair is open all the time. The website to register/login is www.veteranrecruiting.com and the attached flier provides more detail.
