Free Resume Reviews and Career Seminars at a Cleared Job Fair

Posted by Kathleen Smith

We want to make sure the security-cleared job seekers who attend Cleared Job Fairs are successful. To that end we offer some added extras that you don’t typically see at a job fair.

First off we provide professional one-on-one resume reviews from 11am-3pm. These are 5-10 minute sessions where a job seeker can talk directly to an HR professional about their resume particulars. We offer these sessions on a first-come, first-serve basis and they are very popular.

Then we offer a series of seminars throughout the day led by ClearedJobs.Net HR Strategist Patra Frame. Our schedule for next Thursday February 3 at the Westin Tysons Corner includes:
