Career Fair Testimonials

We were continuously busy right up to the end. We spoke with several great candidates and helped them learn how our hiring process works and what they should expect.
Austin Career Fair -- Defense Recruiter
I was interviewed by Intel at the job fair and I passed my interview. I never knew that such complex companies would hire military into entry level positions just on their experience.
