July 2014. Local Job Fairs. Baltimore, MD to Richmond, VA

 Local Job Fairs in July  

The following are job fairs in the local area (Baltimore to Richmond) in July.  Attendance is typically free.  

Pre-registration is mandatory for some, and recommended for essentially all of the job fairs.   Some of these have an existing security clearance of the job seeker as a prerequisite for attendance, are oriented on positions for persons with security clearances, or may be oriented on transitioning military personnel.  

They permit professionals with security clearances to communicate and exchange information with employers with cleared facilities.  Provision of resume-type information in advance may be part of the registration process and may result in pre-screening by the participating recruiters who may then specifically request specific job seekers to their table.  

Specific locations (maps/driving instructions, etc.), other related activities (such as transition related classes, instructions for registering) are typically available at the cited websites or at links thereon.  

The identity of employers to be present is often available at the web site.
