Job Seeker Portal to Employers - Entrance

Each job fair has a Job Seeker Portal that lists companies participating in the event. Each Company has a link to their Employer Portal, which provides more information about the employer, their specific openings, and where they are hiring. Some companies hire locally and some may include remote opportunities.

It's up to you to be aware of what the recruiter is looking for. Check each employer for locations, open positions and more.

Employer Portal to Meet Recruiters

From the Job Seeker Portal you are directed to the company's Employer Portal. Here you will learn about the company, its culture, benefits and open positions. Most employers will have a link to view more positions at their company carreer site.
