DEW, Operation Palmetto Employment (OPE), and SC Works Veterans Services are hosting the “Honoring Our Veterans Virtual Job Fair.” This event is open to the public, however veterans will receive first priority and will be provided early admittance from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. to meet with hiring employers. The public will be able to participate the virtual event anytime from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Registration is required to attend the virtual event. As of February 22, 330 jobseekers have registered to participate statewide, so we need your help in getting this information out. Jobseekers will need to create a free profile with Premier Virtual and upload their resume prior to the event starting.

We have created a tutorial video to explain for jobseekers what the experience will look like, from registration, uploading their resume and then the day-of user experience. You can watch that here on our SC DEW YouTube page.
