Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

Is there a cost for service members / veterans / spouses to attend any of these events?

No – all of these events are provided at no charge to service members, veterans and military spouses.

What is the benefit to attending the Feb 27-28 events?

While every event is optional, the events on Feb 27-28 are designed to prepare you to present your “most prepared self” at the career fair on Mar 2.

The employers you meet on Feb 27-28 will also be at the career fair on Mar 2, so this is also a chance to engage with the recruiters without the pressure of having a line of other job seekers behind you waiting to talk to the recruiters.

The employers participating in the Feb 27-28 events want to help you be a successful job seeker, regardless of whether you ultimately end up applying for a position with their company.

Should I attend these events if I am not available for immediate employment?

Yes, we encourage you to attend all events, even if you are not seeking immediate employment.  All sessions will benefit you and prepare you for when you are actively job seeking in the future.

What is the dress code for these events?

Our employers are experienced in recruiting military so they expect to see a mix of uniformed personnel as well as those in civilian attire.

Tech employers tend to be very casual – seeing recruiters in t-shirts, jeans and sneakers is common.

Financial services employers tend to be more formal – those recruiters will be more likely to be in suits, sports coats, dresses, dress shoes/heels etc.

Most employers will be somewhere in the middle – polo shirts, khaki shirts/skirts, etc.

You may attend any event in uniform or business casual attire, which includes the following:

Men: slacks (khakis/chinos, dress pants), sleeved (long or short) and collared shirt, comfortable clean closed-toe shoes. Add a blazer/sport coat if you want to elevate your look.

Women: sleeved dresses (short or long sleeves) or sleeved tops with skirt or pants, comfortable clean closed toe shoes. Add a blazer if you want to elevate your look.

Do I need to register for each event I want to attend?

Yes, each event has it’s own Eventbrite link to help us project attendance and plan for any food/beverage items the sponsoring employer might want to provide for a specific event.
