The Military Officers Association of America (MOAA), the nation's largest and most influential association of military officers, is hosting the largest D.C. military officer career fair on Tuesday, May 13, 2014.

The event is open to and free for all job seekers who are military servicemembers and government employees – all ranks, active duty, retired, former servicemembers, National Guard/Reserve servicemembers and their spouses.
Employers are also welcome to participate. Employers have the opportunity to recruit new staff from a qualified pool of executive-level applicants. Employer participants also receive access to prospective candidates that will help them meet the new veteran hiring requirements released in February 2014 (The Department of Labor’s Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974).
