Military Spouse Career Fairs in January

New year. New you? If 2018 is the year you are determined to take the next step in your career, start at the most military spouse friendly job fair in America – the spouse hiring events hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation.

The organization hosts hiring fairs across the nation every month and cater to military spouses and military members. The companies that attend specifically want to hire military spouses and former military members because of the wide range of skills they possess.

The transition summits are also for service members, veterans, and military spouses. These summits feature key federal and state agencies, influential military leaders, innovators in the business and employer communities, and local community leaders.

This two-day transition summits will feature interactive and informative panel discussions, recruiter training, and facilitated discussions focused on improving competitive employment for service members, veterans, and military spouses. The summit will also include a networking reception for employers, military leaders, and job seekers, and will culminate in a hiring fair on the second day. 

All of these events are free but you must register online to attend. Don’t forget to register as many sell out.
