4th Annual

UNDERGRADUVETS® & CADETS

NATIONAL CAREER CONFERENCE

 

ABOUT

In early 2015, the team behind the well-known MBA Veterans Career Conference was asked by its recruiting partners to create an  event specifically for undergraduate veterans.

A few months later they launched the UndergraduVets Career Conference, event that has quickly become the premier hiring conference for student veterans & ROTC Cadets.

Every October, it connects candidates from across the US with campus, military, and diversity recruiters representing 20 of the nation’s leading employers for a 1½ days of networking, career panels, onsite interviews & a career expo.
