Hundreds of veterans and military spouses flocked to DC National Guard headquarters this week to meet with job recruiters from around the region.

The Washington, D.C., government held its second annual veteran job fair this week, attracting hundreds of former service members and their spouses from around the region.

“We’ve got veterans from every spectrum, every generation here today, and there is an opportunity for absolutely each and every one of them,” said Ely Ross, director of Mayor Muriel Bowser’s veterans affairs office.

Booths representing government agencies and private companies of all sizes filled the gym floor at D.C. National Guard headquarters, as recruiters looked for veterans to join their team. Some companies even gave contingent job offers to qualified candidates on the spot.

Military Times contributor and former reporter Natalie Gross hosts the Spouse Angle podcast. She grew up in a military family and has a master's degree in journalism from Georgetown University.
