RICHMOND, Va.

There will be more than 150 employers with available jobs posted. Click here for the full list of employers.

The event is free, and you can register for it by clicking here. The only requirement is that you post a resume for employers to review.

Companies and their job listings are available for viewing beginning Friday, July 24.

  • Ensure you post your resume as soon as possible.
  • Have a game plan: Which employers do you want to visit first? Which positions are you interested in and what questions do you have?
  • Prepare and practice your “Elevator Pitch” and be prepared for an interview.
