WASHINGTON – The Department of Veterans Affairs will host a free veterans-only career fair next month at the Washington, D.C. Convention Center, as part of an outreach effort for veterans in the mid-Atlantic states.
The event, scheduled for Jan. 18, is designed to provide “career and education opportunities” for veterans living in the capital, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and West Virginia.
Among the services being offered are classes to “Translate your military skills into language civilian employers understand” and workshops on resume building, interviewing techniques and small-business opportunities. Organizers said attendees will also have the chance to interview for available federal and private sector jobs.
