PAVE Employment Event - Chicago

The PAVE employment conference will serve veterans, transitioning service members, caregivers and military spouses by connecting them with employers from a variety of industries that are looking to hire excellent candidates. Job seekers and employers alike will benefit from separate interactive workshops led by PAVE staff and HR professionals tailored to the two sides of the recruiting equation. During the final two hours of the conference, job seekers and employers will conduct pre-matched and informational interviews, culminating in a summary of survey findings, tracking of placements and other relevant metrics, along with initiating active case management of jobseekers who express an interest in ongoing PAVE services.

Details

The PAVE employment conferences will serve veterans, transitioning service members, caregivers, and military spouses by connecting them with employers from a variety of industries that want to hire top-notch talent. Unlike traditional military job fairs, PAVE employment conferences host both local and national employers who conduct onsite informational interviews in a friendly environment that encourages our veterans and caregivers to enhance their interviewing and networking skills. On the day of each employment conference, jobseekers attend interactive workshops led by PAVE staff and HR professionals on how to network, how to build professional social media profiles, and improve their interviewing skills, all taking into account the candidates' military background and lifestyle.

Employers will participate in a separate workshop addressing the facts and myths surrounding both physical injuries and the invisible wounds of war and exploring best practices related to recruiting, hiring, and retaining veterans and caregivers. Immediately following the workshops, PAVE staff and volunteers from the local community help candidates develop an elevator pitch, try out their interview skills in mock interviews, and create more effective resumes.

During the final two hours of each employment conference, jobseekers and employers will conduct pre-matched and informational interviews geared toward matching these outstanding jobseekers with the best employers.
