Career Fair Testimonials

The job fair went very well. It's all about reaching out to our vets who have served our country. Now it's time for us to help them. I was very impressed with the way the fair was set up and all the other employers that attended.

Transitioning active duty personnel and veterans will always be an excellent source of talent, so I would always recommend an event like this.
