WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The NAB Education Foundation (NABEF), in partnership with the Broadcast Education Association (BEA), announced the addition of a Military Veteran Resource Center to NAB Show's Career Day, Wednesday, April 9, in Las Vegas, NV. Located in the Las Vegas Hotel and Casino Pavilion, Career Day is an annual event that provides college students, entry-level job seekers and experienced professionals with the opportunity to interact with media industry recruiters.

This year, NABEF has partnered with representatives from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation's Hiring Our Heroes program, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Quaestor Federal Consulting to offer resources for veterans and employers. Immediately prior to the Career Fair, employers can attend a free session from 9-10:00 a.m. focusing on the business case for hiring military veterans and skill sets veterans possess that can be applied to the broadcast industry. During the Career Fair, the Military Veterans Resource Center booth will provide advice and opportunities for training related to a successful job search as well as information for both recruiters and job seekers.
Job seekers can attend sessions throughout the day on personal brand management, dressing for success and information on jobs in broadcasting. Career Day will offer the popular one-on-one career coaching sessions that include resume critiques and interview strategies. Recruiters include Beasley Broadcast Group, CNN/Turner Broadcasting, ESPN, Gannett, NEP Broadcasting, PBS Las Vegas, Radionomy and Univision Radio.
