Companies range from America's biggest employers to dozens of small companies from the region. The event will include a free Hiring Our Heroes employment workshop at 9:30am focusing on resume writing, interview skills, and job search techniques for all military members and their spouses. All pre-registered attendees to the fair can receive up to four free tickets for them and their families to attend that evening's game between the San Antonio Spurs and the New York Knicks. The Spurs are preparing a special tribute to U.S. troops that evening.

Military spouses will have an opportunity to network with local HR recruiters, community leaders, and senior military spouses, receive resume support, and gain valuable career advice from industry professionals.
