+ Virtual Career Fair FAQ (13)
What is a Virtual Career Fair (VCF)?

A virtual career fair (VCF) is an online “event” in which employers and job seekers meet in a virtual environment using text chat, video chat, and email to exchange information about job openings. Job seekers can upload resumes and may be matched with employers, or can simply browse employer booths.

Who puts on the VCFs?

H2H has partnered with Milicruit, the recognized leader in virtual recruiting environments for military members.

How many VCF events will take place in 2012?

Milicruit will host four national events and numerous regional events throughout 2012. You can visit https://H2H.jobs/virtualhiringevents to view updates and changes.

When will the VCFs take place?

You can visit https://H2H.jobs/virtualhiringevents to get a list of the 2012 VCFs and when they will be happening.

How do I sign up for a VCF?

Go to www.veteranscareerfair.com and click “Sign Up” in the middle of the page to register with Milicruit and complete your profile. You must complete a profile before you can attend a VCF.

Why do I need to create a profile for the show?

This helps recruiters know your qualifications at a glance when chatting with you. Create a profile by clicking on the My Profile tab at the bottom of the screen from any page. Be sure to upload your resume. Completing your profile gives the recruiter a better idea of who you are and what you have to offer their organization.

Do I need to sign up for each VCF I want to attend?

No. Once you register with Milicruit and complete your profile, you'll be able to attend any VCF by logging in to the system.

Is the registration with Milicruit the same as H2H.jobs?

No, you will need to register separately for each site. Registering with Milicruit will allow you to participate in the fairs and apply to jobs directly from employer booths.

What will be available to me during a VCF?

You will be able to move through an exhibit hall and visit employer booths. In the booths, you will be able to chat with employer representatives, browse and apply for jobs. There is also a networking lounge where you can connect with other job seekers, and a resource center that includes career and education information.

In some instances, it may take a while to chat with employers. Why?

The virtual career fairs draw military personnel, veterans, and spouses from all over the world, and while there are many on hand staffing the booths, the high participant-to-staff ratio results in wait times for those requesting chats with some employers.

To put it in perspective, imagine attending a career fair in person with 20 people at an employer's booth. You would most certainly expect to wait in line at that employer's booth. By preparing yourself well in advance of the fair, you will maximize any chats that you have with recruiters and subject matter experts in the booths.

Will chatting with recruiters serve as a first interview?

No. This online event is informational only. If a participating employer is interested in you, you will be contacted after the fair regarding a follow up telephone or video interview.

Will I have access to the VCF environment when there is not an event happening?

Yes. As a registered user you have 24/7 access to the exhibit hall and employer booths, networking lounge, and resource center. Employers do not man their booths unless events are going on; however, you will still be able to enter their booth and view/apply for jobs and send email messages to employer representatives.

Once I get a new job, how do I delete my Milicruit account from the system?

Email info@milicruit.com with your request, including name and email address you used to access Milicruit, and your account will be deleted.
