Milicruit Partners with the Military Officers Association of America to Bring Veterans and Employers Together in a Perpetual Virtual Career Fair Environment
Apr 18, 2011
CHICAGO, April 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Milicruit and the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) are partnering to deliver a revolutionary, environmentally friendly approach to career fairs. Milicruit has developed a fully interactive virtual career fair environment that allows military friendly employers an opportunity to meet and interact with veterans as if in person, but in a cost effective, efficient and environmentally friendly way. MOAA hosts the largest military-focused career fair in Washington, D.C. twice each year. Milicruit and MOAA will now offer a virtual career fair that will be open 24/7 all year round allowing direct access to employers actively seeking to hire veterans and military spouses.
"Twice a year we host very successful in-person events," said Dick Crampton, Director, Transition Services (TOPS), MOAA. "However, we understand that military veterans and spouses are seeking employment throughout the entire year. By partnering with Milicruit we can offer a continuous virtual career fair that brings employers, veterans and spouses together all year long. We look forward to building a long lasting relationship with Milicruit."
The virtual career fair allows veterans and spouses an opportunity to meet and interact with employers who recognize the value that veterans and military spouses bring to the workforce. To participate at the virtual career fair, veterans and their spouses can register by visiting www.veteranscareerfair.com Veterans and spouses can build a profile including their resume, walk the career fair floor, visit employer booths, view/apply for jobs and chat with employer recruiters as if in person, without having to leave home.
"Milicruit is proud to partner with MOAA. The Milicruit virtual career fair is a logical addition to the ongoing employment services MOAA provides to members and the military community. Our Milicruit perpetual virtual career fair will now provide MOAA members an opportunity to meet with employers from all over the country as if in person, without the cost or burden of travel. In essence, we bring the career fair to the employer and job seeker," said Kevin O'Brien, VP, UBM's Milicruit.
Employers will now have an opportunity to participate in both the in-person career fairs MOAA hosts each year in Washington, DC as well as the virtual career fair which is available all year long through Milicruit. Employers who are interested in learning more about the career fairs offered by Milicruit/MOAA can email Milicruit at [email protected].
