Job Fairs in November

There is much to be done at the holidays. Don’t let your job search fall to the bottom of the to-do list.

Sure, employers and employees alike are hustling at the holidays to finish in time to head home for family celebrations, but holidays are also when many employers need to hire extra help to fill in the gaps. Now is a great time to swoop in, work hard and show employers you have what it takes even in the busiest of seasons.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation continues to host military and military spouse only job fairs at several locations across the nation every month. Employers at each fair attend because they know the talent and skillset that military spouses can offer.

And yes, they know they may only have you around for a year or two. They hire military spouses because they know they are worth it, even if only for a short while.

In November, the foundation is hosting an unusual event, a legal networking reception for military attorneys and paralegals. The event is in Washington D.C. and hosted by the American Bar Association. It should be a great place to network with employers and fellow legal professionals.

The foundation should be releasing its 2018 hiring fair schedule in the coming weeks. Check their website often to get a jump on the newest events and register early.

As with every Hiring our Heroes event, be sure to click on the link below and register. Most events fill up.
