The Veteran Career Fair and Expo is an exciting event designed to provide career and education opportunities for Veterans in Washington, DC, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and West Virginia. As a Veteran, you will be able to register for the benefits and services you have earned through your military service.

Closer to the event, information about special non-competitive hiring authority positions will be posted on this website. You will then have the opportunity to submit your resume, DD214 and eligibility letter to qualify for an onsite interview.
