As the saying goes, March is “in like a lion, out like a lamb.” Much of the country starts to thaw out from winter, we enjoy more daylight in the evenings, and eventually, spring starts to show its colors. For VA Recruitment, March marks the beginning of a busy season of recruitment events. As of today, you have 14 chances this month to meet VA recruiters and subject matter experts at various job fairs across the country, and many more throughout the spring.
From Salem, Oregon to San Juan, Puerto Rico, VA’s presence at hiring fairs across the country is representative of our reach and hiring needs nationwide.
We urge you to view our Calendar of Events and find an event near you. In addition to networking with fellow job seekers, you will have the opportunity to interact face-to-face with consultants from the VHA National Recruitment Program, local recruiters, and other VA employees. According to Crystal Waite, VHA Healthcare Recruitment and Marketing National Events Coordinator, this time is invaluable for potential candidates.
“They have direct access to someone who can answer their questions, provide point of contact information, discuss job availability, locations, employment requirements and benefits,” says Waite.
VA also uses social media to promote attendance at some national events, and you can follow along on Twitter (@VAcareers) and search #workatVA. By following our account and #workatVA, you can learn about job openings, upcoming Twitter Chats and valuable hiring information in real time.
