The Career Fair listing began in 1994 as a one page email to 24 transitioning military personnel at the Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. It has morphed into its present format over the years and now is received by some 80,000 world-wide. The initial focus of listed career fairs was metropolitan Washington, DC/Baltimore, MD. Requests have resulted in the expansion across the East Coast.
The Career Fair and Open House listings are part of a Pay It Forward Endeavour. It is hoped that this effort will make the job search process a bit more helpful to those thinking about, planning or are actually in the job search process. It can also be an assist to those employers planning career fairs.
