Organized by Transition Careers LLC, the focus of the job fair will be hot job opportunities in Augusta and nationwide.
Active-duty, reserve, National Guard, military retirees and civilians with experience in defense, engineering, information technology, cyber and intelligence are encouraged to register and participate.
Active or current (used within 24 months) security clearance issued by the U.S. federal government is required for job seekers to participate.
Job seekers must pre-register and submit their resume. There will also be jobs available nationwide as well, according to Jason Semerakis, founder and CEO of Transition Careers LLC, who is responsible for coordinating the event.
“So even if they are interested in relocating or maybe entertaining jobs elsewhere, they’ll be able to find out about that, as well,” he said.
