October busy month for military spouse hiring fairs

Unfortunately hurricane damage and repairs have cancelled several military spouse hiring events in North Carolina in early October. However, the rest of the month is full of military spouse professional opportunities.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation continues to support spouses not just with spouse-only job fairs but also with events to help spouses build their resumes, practice professional interviewing skills and find ways to become leaders in building their communities.

For more information on each event, visit

Be certain to register asap! These events fill up quickly. Good luck!
