Governor Henry McMaster, the South Carolina Department of Administration (Admin) and the South Carolina Department of Veterans’ Affairs (SCDVA) encourage all South Carolina Veterans looking to continue a career of service to take part in the Veterans Virtual Career Fair happening Nov. 9, 2022.
The virtual career fair, the third dedicated to Veterans, provides Veterans an opportunity to explore career opportunities with more than 30 state agencies and institutions of higher education.
“South Carolina prides itself on being a military-friendly state,” said McMaster. “Hiring men and women who served in the military strengthens our workforce, communities and state. The virtual career fair not only builds the experience and competencies of state government and higher education institutions, but it also continues to make South Carolina the best place for Veterans to live, work and raise their families.”
“South Carolina state government is committed to connecting transitioning service members and Veterans to the wide variety of career options available in state government. We want Veterans living in South Carolina to continue serving and protecting South Carolina citizens through work at our state agencies and higher education institutions,” said Admin Executive Director Marcia Adams. “This virtual career fair is a way for Veterans to easily connect directly with agencies in state government that have openings now.”
“This is an excellent opportunity for military Veterans and transitioning service members to thrive in South Carolina, making meaningful contributions to state government while continuing their tradition of selfless service,” said SCDVA Secretary Will Grimsley. “It is also an opportunity for state agencies to capitalize on the unique skills, abilities and experiences Veterans bring to the workplace.”
