Fort Eustis, Va. – Veterans looking for employment will have the opportunity to find dozens of employers during a military job fair on Thursday.

The Army Career and Alumni Program, Army Community Service, and the Virginia Employment Commission, is sponsoring the Joint Base Langley-Eustis job fair to be held at the Fort Eustis Club, 2123 Pershing Avenue, on Thursday, March 21, from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.

More than 40 employers will be participating in the job fair to include Newport News Shipbuilding, EPES Transport Systems, Norfolk Southern Corporation, Department of Justice, Oceaneering International, Dominion, Tapestry Solutions, AMSEC LLC, Computer Science Corporation, Patterson Utility Drilling Co, URS Corporation, US Patent Trademark Office, Riverside Health System, Bradley-Morris, US Secret Service and more.
