Edinburg, TX (PRWEB) July 3, 2008
The U.S. Border Patrol, in partnership with RecruitMilitary, LLC, will present a free career fair and open house for job seekers who have military backgrounds in Edinburg, Texas, on Saturday, July 19. The event will take place from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Border Patrol's Rio Grande Valley Sector Headquarters. Edinburg is the county seat of Hidalgo County, which borders the Rio Grande; Edinburg is about 60 miles from the Gulf of Mexico.
Admission to the career fair and open house will be limited to military and veteran personnel, and the Border Patrol will be the only employer present.
