GRAFENWOEHR, Germany -- The Army Career and Alumni Program will host the first ever European Virtual Career Fair, Feb. 25.
Job seekers can register online now and also with their local ACAP Center. Once registered, they can create a profile, upload a resume, browse advertised positions around the U.S. and even apply.
During the fair, Feb. 25 from 4-6 p.m. (Central European Time), job seekers can ask recruiters specific questions and even sell themselves for jobs to which they've already applied.
The key, though, according to Ben Petersdorff, Transition Services manager, ACAP Region Europe, is to register as soon as possible.
"The last two years employers have come from the States. This virtual career fair is one way of giving Soldiers here in Europe a chance to get a job back in the U.S. before leaving," said Petersdorff.
This virtual career fair is for every active duty members who are separating from the military, spouses seeking employment and all branches of the service stationed in Europe.
Currently more than 40 employers, including XEROX, Aetna, Capital One and the Transportation Security Administration, will scheduled to attend the fair.
Petersdorff said at the last ACAP-ACS sponsored career fair more than 100 applicants were given interviews. He is optimistic about this year's fair.
"I can't stress enough that job seekers register right away," he said.
