Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) expressed appreciation with the Department of Veterans Affairs’ decision to observe Veterans Day with a national virtual job fair on November 10.
On November 8, she said: “Alaska’s veteran community is the highest per capita in the nation and they’re spread across the state, requiring flying or driving great distances to seek job opportunities. This event lets those Alaskans with Internet access point and click their way to the next step in their career instead. It’s a good first step in serving those who served us – whether they are dealing with some of the snows we’ve had so far this season or off the road system altogether – though a lot more help is needed to comprehensively address the needs of Alaska’s veterans.”
So far more than 60 military-friendly national employers from both the private and federal sectors and more than 36,000 veterans have registered to participate.
For more information: Veterans can pre-register at for this event here. From 7 a.m. – 12 p.m. AKST on Thursday, veterans can log in and visit employer booths, view job openings, apply for jobs, watch employer videos and presentations, chat live with recruiters, and complete on-the-spot video interviews.
