USBA hosting job fair in Kansas CityUSBA is committed to assisting active duty service members, veterans and family members transition into the civilian workforce. As part of this mission, USBA is co-sponsoring the Kansas City-area Veteran Career & Transition Fair, now in its second year.

One hundred fifty companies are expected to be represented with hundreds of highly-qualified military job-seekers eager to meet with them. In addition to making contact with hiring companies, participants will have the opportunity to attend panel discussions featuring high profile veterans who have successfully made the transition into the civilian workforce. There will also be opportunities to network with other veterans and transitioning service members from the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard.

Reserve your spot in advance with free online registration. You can also register at the door.

The event is open to active duty military personnel, active reserve and National Guard, and anyone else who has served in the U.S. armed forces for any period of time, as well as spouses. Sponsors include The Fort Leavenworth Soldier for Life Transition Assistance Program, Grantham University, Lone Light Analytics, Matt Maciel Financial, Overland Park Convention Center, and USBA.

Proceeds from the event will be donated to veteran-related organizations like Veterans Community Project (VCP), the VFW, the American Legion, American Fallen Warriors, and Friends in Service of Heroes. If you have any questions, please send an email.
