A job fair called Hiring Our Heroes-Joint Base Charleston presented an opportunity for transitioning service members, veterans and military spouses earlier this week.
The last job fair like it took place in 2017. This year’s event more than tripled in attendance numbers with more than 70 employers showcasing their company’s opportunities to perspective employees, according to a news release.
Attendees on June 15 learned about careers and opportunities in industries such as supply chain/logistics, aviation and STEM, skill bridge programs, fellowships, internships, upskilling and reskilling programs. Professional development speakers and coaches offered a variety of skillset workshops to military connected individuals as they transition into the corporate and private sector.
