PURPOSE. This event includes a one-day trade show, extensive networking opportunities and government procurement workshops for both prospective and current federal contractors. The purpose of the DTS is to build relationships between senior representatives of the Congressional delegation, the Department of Defense, other federal agencies and numerous defense contracting firms, including North Carolina small businesses. The event will include a traditional trade show, static displays and demonstrations of military equipment, informal networking opportunities, live vendor demonstrations, installation small business panels and contracting workshops.
Hiring Military and Veteran Workforce Resource Opportunities. In today’s recruitment for talented and qualified personnel, employers are beginning to understand the value of “Hiring Veterans.” Former service members bring distinctive and unique capabilities to the job market developed through world-class training and high-pressure experience. Many employers lack knowledge in understanding the strategic value that a Veteran offers. Join members of FTCC’s Military and Veterans Outreach team as they interpret the skills awarded to our soldiers through their extensive military experience and transition into the civilian workforce. Also highlighted in this session are veteran hiring programsthat are available in North Carolina to reach the veteran populations (NC4ME, NCWorks).
