CHARLESTON, SC -

Welcome Home 2013 offers area employers the chance to interview and hire some of our nation's best trained Veterans into their workforce on August 8 at the Charleston Area Convention Center from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.

The annual free event is a job fair for employers and job seekers open to all Veterans, service members and their families.  A workshop for Veterans and other military job seekers that focuses on resume writing, tips for successfully navigating hiring fairs, military skill translation, and interviewing will start at 9 a.m.

"When Veterans leave the military the first thing they need is a good job and we are offering companies a great way to meet and hire them," said Event Coordinator and VA Seamless Transition Manager Jan Bolger.

"Veterans offer the qualities employers are looking for … a strong work ethic, ability to work as part of a highly motivated team, leadership, and technical skills," added Bolger.

To be part of Welcome Home 2013, employers should go to www.charleston.va.gov and click on the Welcome Home 2013 banner to complete their online registration.
