MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. — The Patriot Group, Inc. hosted a job fair at the Pacific Views Event Center on Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, Aug. 30.
The job fair included military and veteran friendly employers, colleges, trade and technical schools, and universities.
According to TPGI website, “Our Mission is to provide the highest professional military hiring events, education and resource fair services for our active duty military, veterans and their spouses and families, in order to help our Military and Veteran community find meaningful employment, quality education and much needed resources.”
Several vendors attended the event in order to provide opportunities for Marines of all skill level to receive information on employment, education and other resources.
“There are definitely a variety of vendors here,” said Capt. Gregory Moore, the company commander for Combat Logistics Regiment 17. “I actually called a couple of my Marines who are preparing to get out, and told them to come down here.”
Courses on resume writing and interview skills were also beneficial to those who are preparing to reenter the civilian world.
“Whether Marines are here for an employer, one of the resources or to take part in the training all of our attendees get an equal look at everything,” said David Dickey, the president of TPGI.
