Do I need a security clearance to attend the career fair and represent my organization?
No. You do not need a security clearance. The career fairs are unclassified events. If your organization is registered to exhibit, Transition Careers will gather the necessary security information so you can gain access to the event (two representative maximum per exhibitor).
