Published on

In just two weeks, the will host a Career Expo January 18, 2012 at Ft. Benning, Ga. Get this information out to the men and women who are transitioning from active duty to civilian life, retirees, veterans, and members of the National Guard and Reserve and their spouses so they may take advantage of this free opportunity to meet with local and national employers.

We encourage your transitioning military and military veterans to pre-register for the career expo at the website so they may take advantage of the matching process which enhances their career expo experience. All military or former military may upload their resume and pre-register for the event to have their skills matched against all attending employers. Those employers will be sent a copy of the matched candidate's resume prior to the career expo. Upon signing in at the career expo, pre-registered candidates will be given a list of employers their skills and geographical preference matched with.

NOTE: Non-ID cardholders who are veterans MUST pre-register online for the career expo no later than January 4, 2012 in order to participate in the matching process.

Military-friendly organizations will be on hand to speak with and interview job seekers. We are expecting 40 or more companies to participate. These organizations include corporate employers, law-enforcement agencies and educational institutions, hiring locally or seeking candidates for nation-wide placement. Please see attached job opportunities list for this event.

Candidates can call (678) 819-4153 if they have any questions about the career expo or registering on the website.

We encourage you to visit to learn more about their career expos and their career expo schedule. The career expos are open to all military ID card holders and their spouses, military retirees and veterans and any base personnel interested in attending.

Visit for a blog devoted to helping transitioning military and prior-military find careers in the civilian world. Topics include resume tips, how to translate your military experience into terms a civilian hiring authority can understand, hot career areas for military-experienced job seekers, career coaching, and more.
