The Career Fairs are a partnership between the Offutt Airman & Family Readiness Center (A&FRC) and the Human Resource Association of the Midlands (HRAM). They are open to all Active Duty, DoD Civilians, Veterans, Retirees, Guard, Reserve, Family Members and the Public.
For each fair we have between 200-300 jobseekers attend, which by the Offutt measure is a great turnout. While the event is open for veterans, family members, and the public, our main focus is the transitioning service members. Offutt has roughly 300 transitioning service members at any given time. Of those 300, only some are actively seeking employment and are interested in attending, or able to attend the career fair. Our goal is not the quantity of jobseekers attending, but rather the quality of jobseekers and to help connect the transitioning service members to employers in the civilian sector.
In addition to looking for career opportunities, we encourage the transitioning service members to attend the career fair and use it as a learning opportunity to research and explore new careers, start learning about the civilian workforce culture, and have one on one conversations with HR representatives to answer some of their questions and identify other potential career paths.
This focus also gives the employers the opportunity to be actively involved in helping the transitioning service members transition out of the military and integrate into the civilian sector.
"The fair was such a great opportunity for Streck to get in front of individuals who currently are or have served our country. Everything was very well organized and ran very smoothly. We appreciate our partnership and love the additions added each year to events to enhance not only our experience but also the attendees."
