sc dept of admin-vets career fair

Veterans looking to continue a career of service can take part in a Veterans’ Virtual Career Fair happening Nov. 9. The goal is to provide veterans an opportunity to explore career opportunities with more than 35 state agencies and institutions of higher education.

Governor Henry McMaster, the South Carolina Department of Administration, and the South Carolina Department of Veterans Affairs will be hosting the career fair. All South Carolina veterans are encouraged to participate.

“South Carolina prides itself in being a military state that values our veterans and recognizes their many skills and talents,” said McMaster. “That is why our state agencies are actively recruiting men and women who’ve served in the military. The discipline and skills they bring to the table enable them to have a long and successful state government career and help agencies better serve South Carolinians.”

Participating agencies are recruiting for accounting, finance, engineering, grant management, health care, human resources, information technology, management, security and law enforcement, and skilled trades.

Each agency will have virtual booths where job seekers can take part in a video chat or set a time to talk directly with a human resources representative about available openings.

Some of the more than 35 participating agencies:

• Aiken Technical College

• Clemson University

• Midlands Technical College

• South Carolina Department of Administration

• South Carolina Department of Corrections

• South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control

• South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice

• South Carolina Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services

• South Carolina Department of Public Safety

• South Carolina Department of Revenue

• South Carolina Department of Transportation

• Spartanburg Community College
