BMI ConferenceHire® Process (Employers)
BMI hiring events are the most efficient and effective in the industry. Our ConferenceHire events (which are much different than a military job fair) are typically held on a Monday. This enables clients and candidates to meet in the relaxed environment of a first class hotel and interview for great job opportunities with minimal impact to busy hiring manager schedules.
At a BMI ConferenceHire event , employers will interview former military personnel for leadership / management, supervisory / technical / field service, or sales / business development positions.

Sunday is preparation day for candidates.
- All of the candidates participate in BMI's interview preparation program which includes an interviewing seminar (unlike a military job fair which generally doesn't assist with interviews).
- The remainder of Sunday is used to brief the candidates on the companies and positions they are scheduled to interview with on Monday. In the briefings, the candidates are given an overview of the prospective company along with the job description, salary and benefits information, and an interviewer profile. This will ensure that candidates will be fully prepared for Monday interviews.
Monday is interview day. Employers arrive on Sunday night or Monday morning to interview on Monday.
- Client companies will interview with pre-screened candidates that are qualified for their open positions. Most often, interviews will take place in the privacy of a hotel suite.
After the hiring event, Bradley-Morris coordinates the post-event actions.
- Candidates will call their assigned BMI representative after the hiring event is completed. The BMI representative will brief the candidate regarding which companies wish to pursue them as a potential employee. Based on mutual interest level, a BMI Account Representative who works with that client company will recommend follow-up steps.
- In most cases, client companies will bring the candidate on-site for a second interview and to tour the location / facilities (known as a "site visit").
Following the site visit, Bradley-Morris will oversee the offer stage of the hiring process. This helps produce the optimal result for candidate and employer alike.
