Atlanta Veterans Job Fair at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Thursday June 21st. @RecruitMilitary

On June 21st I will be visiting the Mercedes-Benz Stadium for the first time and I can't think of a more rewarding reason as I will be searching for possible candidates with military service to fill a possible upcoming Federal vacancy where I work. 

The Federal hiring process is not an easy one to navigate as most jobs are advertised on the USAjobs website and interested applicants typically apply on-line.  There are a few special hiring authorities that sidestep this on-line process and when it comes to Veterans, the Veterans’ Recruitment Appointment (VRA) is an excepted authority that allows agencies, to appoint eligible veterans without competition.

Hypothetically, if I was looking to fill a future Federal law enforcement or investigator type position in Atlanta, someone who had an attention to detail regarding regulatory issues, someone with Spanish language skills, who also had the ability to understand chemistry and technical engineer drawings; then you could possibly be hired without formal competition as long as your resume was accurate and your dd214 (Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Military Duty) showed the proper requirements for VRA consideration.

There are currently 84 exhibitors scheduled to be in attendance looking to hire veterans & transitioning military personnel therefore if you have served this country with honor and are looking for a change in employment, please come out with plenty of resumes to talk to those who may have positions available.

Maybe I'll see you there?
