The SAME 2020 Transition Workshop & Job Fair connects uniformed and veteran service members with organizations recruiting qualified A/E/C professionals.  Whether you’re just starting your transition, have your separation date set, or are now a civilian looking for your next opportunity —you’ll benefit from this program featuring: 
  • The current job outlook for A/E/C positions 
  • Resume and interview tips and strategies
  • Panelists sharing their recent transition experiences
  • Ample opportunities to network with fellow attendees, career experts, and recruiters

Each attending company or agency that is recruiting has a private suite for small group gatherings as well as one-on-one discussions.

Submit your resume in advance by going to your member account dashboard and uploading your resume under documents. We’ll forward it to employers who are actively looking to fill positions specific to your skills and expertise.

Registration is FREE for SAME members who are transitioning military or not currently employed; there is a nominal fee for SAME members employed in the private sector and nonmembers.
