What are events?
A recruitment event, such as a job fair, career expo, career fair, or hiring event, is held by employers, schools or recruiters and offers on-the-spot interviews and information about the employer or job to interested job seekers.
You can use the event feature in ATP to advertise recruitment and other career-related events on USAJOBS.
What kind of events can I create?
You can create in-person or virtual events that support federal hiring, such as:
- Hiring workshops
- Job fairs
- Information sessions
All events must be:
- Hosted by a federal agency.
- Support federal hiring.
- Be open to a broad and large group.
USAJOBS will not post any event for a private company or any event that is only open to small group of people or a specific career field. USAJOBS gets over a million visits to the site each week. Advertising a small event will likely result in ineligible participants.
For example, we can’t post an event for a private company, such as the Miami Boat Show. But we can say:
Event title: OPM Hiring Fair
Event description: See our recruiters at the Miami Boat Show.
Where do events display?
Approved events display on the USAJOBS’ events page and will display until the event is over.
