Employers, please forward information on attendees to firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure base access. Detailed information about base access, which entrance to the base to use, and additional day-of-event planning factors will be sent to preregistered attendees and employers. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged for job seekers, as base access on the day of the event will be limited to military ID holders and preregistered job seekers.
The University of Phoenix employment workshop consists of a classroom session beginning one hour prior to the hiring fair followed by HR professionals conducting one-on-one mentoring sessions with all pre-registered participants. Mentoring sessions focus on resume building; resume writing, and interviewing techniques for all job-seeking veteran and service member participants.
Interested candidates must complete the FREE electronic pre-registration in order to participate. A maximum of 50 participants will be accepted for the full workshop. Once the pre-registered candidates have their coaching sessions, the opportunity may be available for “walk ins” to have a coaching session through the end of the Fair (depending on availability).
