Episode 72 – The Difference Between a Cameron-Brooks Hiring Conference and a Job Fair

Do you know the difference between a Job Fair and Hiring Conference?

Unfortunately, many JMOs mistakenly think all transition searches and services are the same.  The reality is: most of these searches and services are Job Fairs that end up being more of a networking event instead of an interviewing opportunity. Cameron-Brooks breaks this mold. We defined the Career Conference and Career Search process. At our Career Conferences, JMOs interview for open positions with hiring managers, and the companies and candidates are matched based mutual interests and requirements. 

In this podcast, Cameron-Brooks Alumnus, Kris French, explains the difference between the Job Fair search and a Cameron-Brooks Career Conference.  He knows because, before partnering with Cameron-Brooks, he went the Job Fair route with the Service Academy Career Conference.

Kris is an USMA 2013 grad with a degree in Engineering Management and a former Army Engineer.  He is currently an IT Project Manager with ExxonMobil at their new campus north of Houston, TX.  In addition to talking about the Job Fair and Career Search differences, Kris also explains how he landed an IT position with ExxonMobil and some of the projects he has worked on over the last year.
