FAQ

stars_gold

Does my company also have to be a sponsor of the MBA Veterans Career Conference and/or the UndergradU-Vets Career Conference to register for the Military Recruiting Leaders’ Summit?

While we’d be thrilled to host your firm at one of both of our student veteran recruiting events (which immediately follow the Summit), there is no requirement to participate in either of those conferences in order to register for the Summit.

If I (or team members) register for the Summit and our firm does not Sponsor or exhibit at the MBA Veterans or UndergradU-Vets Conferences, can we attend those events as well?

Our Fall hiring conferences are hosted concurrently for recruiters’ convenience, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness but they are distinctive events  from the Summit so you won’t be able to attend any portion of the events that you or your company has not formally registered for.

There is a topic of interest related to military recruiting that I’d really like to either speak about or have a formal program developed for – are you accepting submissions for presentation or soliciting topics of interest?

Absolutely, please send us a note via the contact form and we’d be happy to consider any suggestions.
