Get hired in 2017 Texas, we’re coming to you in February. Register for one of our career expos at NCOA CAREER EXPOS. We can’t wait to see you there! Why attend a job fair? Because, employers attend job fairs, and there is no substitute for face to face meetings. Employers can provide you with tips to bypass or streamline the online process. You can ask the employer about substituting your military experience in place of formal education. Employers can take your information and reach out to you directly when an opening is available. A job fair is a great place to do your homework about salary range, benefits, and clearance requirements at companies where you want to work.
