COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - Are you a veteran looking for a job?

This provides veterans an opportunity to explore career opportunities with more than 35 state agencies and institutions of higher education.

“South Carolina prides itself in being a military state that values our veterans and recognizes their many skills and talents,” said Governor Henry 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.”

“As a state agency, we want to continually connect veterans to the many career opportunities in state government,” said Admin Executive Director Marcia Adams. “This virtual career fair is a convenient way for veterans to learn about those openings and talk directly with human resources professionals.”

“Bringing veterans into state government service is a wise choice, and benefits the veteran, the state, and the citizens of South Carolina,” said SCDVA Secretary Will Grimsley. “Hard-working, dedicated, and talented veterans bring both a drive for excellence and a fresh perspective to state government.”
