VOWS, IAVA and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Hiring Our Heroes Fair In New York City
Posted by Christina Kim on May 31
First we went to San Francisco. And then Chicago. But those aren’t the only cities where IAVA is hosting our innovative job fairs!
On Thursday, June 21 from 8:00AM - 1:00PM, we’ll be partnering for a U.S. Chamber of Commerce Hiring Our Heroes Job Fair in conjunction with Veterans on Wall Street (VOWS) in New York City. VOWS, a consortium of top financial institutions that includes Bank of America, Citi, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank and Goldman Sachs, is an initiative dedicated to honoring former military personnel and employees currently in the National Guard and Reserve by facilitating career and business opportunities in the financial services industry.
Even if you’ve already registered through a different website or organization, we encourage you to register with IAVA. By registering through IAVA, you’ll get access to special opportunities and giveaways available only to IAVA members. This event is also open to veterans of other eras and military spouses.
The nation’s top companies and organizations are looking to hire our New Greatest Generation - and that means you. We’ll also have a host of resources and services to help jump start your career, ranging from resume reviews, interview skills training and more. Whether it’s getting that new job offer, landing that promotion or building your professional network, IAVA’s got your back.
IAVA is also working with Take the Interview (TTI) to connect IAVA members with an exclusive and unique opportunity to help you develop and fine-tune your interview skills in preparation for the job fair! With TTI, IAVA members will have the opportunity to practice free online interviews and get individualized feedback from industry experts. You may even have the opportunity to meet your reviewer at the job fair and get additional feedback.
Please note that the registration for the 2012 Veterans on Wall Street (VOWS) Conference is separate from the job fair. Click here to register for the 2012 VOWS Conference.
