Career Fair Testimonials

Location was convenient and I appreciated the helper walking around to guide job seekers to the right employer.
Portland -- Army, Navy, National Guard, and Reserves E-8
Quality of veterans was outstanding - as was your team!
Portland -- Insurance recruiter
There were a lot of great candidates, and even more with untapped potential. It was great to utilize the skills and abilities of the candidates in ways they hadn't yet thought of. This is (personally) my first event with RecruitMilitary, however, my company has previously participated in events and my experience is similar to others. Great job! Great experience, from the pre-communications all the way down to contact during and after the fair. Nice!
