  • Share

Joint Base Charleston will host a free transition summit and career fair for service members, veterans and military spouses at the end of August, in conjunction with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

The Hiring Our Heroes Transition Summit, on Aug. 22 and 23 at The Charleston Club on the base, will include panel discussions, recruiter training and discussions focused on improving employment opportunities for service members and veterans who want to transition into the civilian workforce.

There will also be a networking reception for employers and job seekers, and a career fair will be held at the end of the second day.

Employers, veteran service organizations and those who would like to volunteer must register by July 28. Job seekers must also register by Aug. 21, but walk-ins are welcome with a valid ID or credentials.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce holds transition summits throughout the year at different military installations across the country. This is the only summit scheduled for South Carolina this year.
