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
  • Training

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.
