Recruiting Manager – Progressive
Veteran Recruiting provides an innovative, technology based service that takes recruiting to a whole new level! The training was easy, the virtual venue truly represented a trade show environment where you experience meeting people in the lobby area to your own company booth. My team and I loved the tools where we could chat privately with the candidates, review resumes, and see who was in your booth…all at the same time. The best part was we found top notch veteran candidates utilizing the service and we did not have to leave our desk!

The virtual career fair is a great way to meet and interact with employers across the country, and without the cost, or hassle of having to travel to a physical location.
You can visit the employer booths, view and apply for jobs, and chat with recruiters in real time.
The virtual career fair is open all the time, and even when an employer is not staffing their booth, you can still send the recruiters direct emails in each booth.
