About Us

Who Are We?

 The Veterans Career Fair was established by veterans and a veteran spouse to help service members and their families transition from military service to civilian careers. Our first Greater Kansas City Veteran Career Fair was held in January 2018 at the Olathe American Legion.  We moved the Overland Park Convention Center in February 2019 to accommodate more employers and job seekers.   Over 600 veterans, active service members, and military family members attended last year’s fair.  Since 2018, the career fair has raised and distributed over $25,000 to veteran-related charities.
