Washington DC Career Fair - Research & Science recruiter
It was a very good mix of employers, and the ones that were there seemed to be genuinely engaged in the process and actually committed to connecting veterans with jobs vs simply "throw your resume in the box and we'll call you if anything comes up" which I have seen elsewhere.

Every vendor was eager to assist and all had great follow ups following the job fair.
