A career fair is on offer for veterans, personnel who are leaving the military, and also their spouses or partners. A wide assortment of both local and national companies will be participating in the function, and it will also offer the attendees an opportunity to learn more about the different programs and other supports that may be helpful to them.

The event will include chances for employers and potential employees to meet face to face, and some may even be conducting interviews on site. There will also be plenty of networking, so those who plan on participating are reminded to dress to impress and take high-quality business cards and résumés to distribute.
