UVA and Virginia Tech Alumni Associations Career Fairs, DC Jobs - Feb 29 and March 6 2012
Two great Northern Virginia and DC Jobs events coming up in the next week - the UVA Club of Washington DC's 6th Annual Career Fair, and the National Capital Region’s Chapter of the Virginia Tech Alumni Association's 21st Annual Job Fair.
The UVA alumni-only job fair takes place tomorrow, Wednesday February 29, 5 - 8 p.m. at the National Rural Electric Co-op Assoc. (4301 Wilson Boulevard Arlington, VA 22203). A full list of companies attending is available on the website.
The Virginia Tech job fair (Tuesday, March 6th 2012) is conveniently located in Falls Church VA adjacent to the West Falls Church Metro station - because of limited parking it's suggested that participants use the Metro for transportation (orange line). The Job Fair is not just for VA tech alumni but is free and open to the public. More than 80 businesses from the DC Metro Area will be in attendance looking to fill numerous positions within their companies. The opportunities range from internships and entry-level jobs to more senior level positions as well.
To attend, interested participants (applicants and hiring companies) must log on to http://www.dchokies.org and register for an available entrance time and also to submit their resume. It is highly recommended that you submit your resume online in order to reach all hiring companies. Some companies will be viewing these resumes before and after the event and companies that were unable to staff the event have registered to view resumes online.
The DC VA Tech Alumni Association expects a record turnout this year and had more than 1,500 candidates last year. There are a limited number of spots for companies interested in hosting a table onsite at the job fair but also an unlimited number of spots available for companies interested in viewing all of the resumes from the event.
A list of attending companies can also be found on the National Captial Region Virginia Tech Alumni website. The list includes many large and small companies from the area, including Deloitte, AT&T, Hazen and Sawyer, PC, Liberty Mutual, Freddie Mac, Cvent, Rackspace Hosting and many others with immediate openings to fill.
The National Capital Region Virginia Tech Alumni Association is a nonprofit organization that supports local Virginia Tech Alumni with events and fundraising throughout the year. Any monies raised at these events goes to support the NCR Alumni Association’s scholarship fund. Over the past 10 years, through the hard work of local Virginia Tech Alumni, they have raised more than $250,000 in scholarship money for Virginia Tech students.
