Congressman Scott to host job fair for veterans | Business
NORTH CHARLESTON (WCSC) - Congressman Tim Scott will host a job fair for veterans at the North Charleston Convention Center later this month in partnership with the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center and SC Works Trident of the SC Department of Employment and Workforce.
The February 22 event, which runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., is free and open to Veterans of all eras, active duty military, and their families.
“There are many Service Members transitioning to Veteran status that are in need of jobs and the VA appreciates Congressman Scott’s leadership on bringing together some of the best employers in the Charleston area to help meet that need,” said Scott Isaacks, Acting Director of the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center.
More than 50 area companies, defense contractors and government agencies will be onsite to recruit veterans for available positions. VA will also provide onsite enrollment for health care and benefits, and vocational rehabilitation counselors will be available to discuss job training opportunities.
Veterans should bring copies of their resume to the event. Employers interested in participating in the job fair should contact Cong. Scott’s office at (843) 852-2222.
