For the most up-to-date information about government job fairs, check out GovCentral’s Government Job Fair calendar.

Attending job fairs is a terrific way to meet potential employers, practice your interviewing skills, and gain an appreciation for what skills and work experience are valued by each department. Furthermore, representatives you will meet at job fairs will give you personalized feedback on your resume, and will critique your previous work experience. There are plenty of changes to make a strong impression and to get the attention of the employer you want to work for. Most job fairs will be entirely free, and although they can be somewhat time consuming, they are definitely worth attending.

Many job fairs and career expos also offer seminars on topics such as “Finding a Federal Job” and “How to Excel at a Job Fair”; attend these to ensure that you’re getting the most out of your job search.

This guide breaks down 2009’s job fairs by government department. If you aren’t sure about what department you want to work for, it might make sense to attend job fairs which host several departments at once.

Mark your calendar, and be sure to attend one of the fairs you find:

    Don't hold your breath people. This site never gives information on real jobs or help. It's just a lot of useless talk....Did they answer their own question? NO !
