This sounds like a nice innovation to
me. It's all happening this weekend at the old Bethesda Naval Hospital, which
has a stupid new name.

100,000 Jobs Mission is holding a hiring event with the U.S. Navy
this Saturday, Feb 25, from 10:00 to 15:00, at Naval Support Activity in
Bethesda, Maryland, home of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. The event is open to all veterans, transitioning servicemembers and military
spouses. This is different from traditional job fairs by aligning candidates to
specific companies and positions based on their interests and qualifications
BEFORE the hiring event begins. Hiring managers will be on site to
conduct interviews and are prepared to make offers that day. Registration is strongly
encouraged prior to the event. (URL: http://www.100000jobsmission.com/)
than 20 employers from diverse industries will be at the event, seeking to hire
veterans and military spouses for jobs ranging from entry level to management
positions. Participating companies include: JPMorgan Chase, Lockheed
Martin, ManTech International Corporation, Orbis and many others. If
you or someone you know is a veteran and is looking for a job, please share
this information and encourage them to register!
Please note, proof of military service is required for base access
(military ID card, veteran ID issued by VA, or DD-214 plus a photo ID).
