Our first US Veterans Career Expo is on April 12, 2019, in Washington DC. This is open to all branches of the US Armed Forces and we welcome active duty, reservists or retired service members and spouses.

This is not your average Career Expo. Our Career Expos have been highly successful and popular in Australia, and we are bringing them to you!

This event is an excellent opportunity for meeting employers, conduct face to face engagements with hiring managers from leading US companies in the cyber industry, and learn about potential career pathways. And it’s completely FREE to attend, and the bar opens at noon! We can’t wait to see you.

For employers, reach out to our team today about attending this event – and sponsorship opportunities! Contact events@withyouwithme.com for more information.
