DHS to conduct job and hiring fair

The Department of Homeland Security will conduct a job and hiring fair for military personnel Sept. 25 at the Virginia Beach Convention Center in Virginia Beach, Va. Veterans, active-duty servicemembers, Guardsmen and reservists, and family of military are invited to attend the event, which will provide career workshops and hire individuals on the spot to work for DHS.

Attendees can meet and network with representatives from DHS about federal careers. Hiring managers from DHS will be on site, ready to extend tentative offers of employment. Representatives from federal branches will also be on hand, including the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the Secret Service. Workshops will educate attendees on working within the federal government and will give instructions on how to apply for a federal job.

Register for the event at DHS's Web site. The fair will be conducted from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Suite 5, on the second level of the Virginia Beach Convention Center.

good plan if your still serving. but what about those of who have been downsized and are busting our buts for a country and legion who don't. care? our local job help office , and vet rep, hand you a form to fill out and then have you sit down at a computer to do your job search. hell i can save the gas and do that at home. All vet rep wanted was a copy of my 214 so he could get his numbers for the month. You ask him what jobs are open and he tells you to check the computer. once he has your info forget it. Gee how can i get a government job like that? hey dhs how about the west coast and i am not taking cali. or seattle.
