Career Fair Testimonials
It is better than most job fairs and I think one reason behind that is because it was restricted to veterans / military members and spouses only. The fact that no one left early was impressive as well and rarely seen in the job fairs we normally attend.

I can't wait for the next event. The specific market that the event catered to was right up our alley. It was a great recruiting event for our institution. (Education recruiter)
