Press Release: 2022 Job Fair

NEWPORT NEWS, VA, July 8, 2022 – The Virginia Peninsula Chamber, in collaboration with the Military Family Support Center Employment Programs, will present the 2022 Military / Business Job Fair on Tuesday, July 19th, 2022 from 9:00 AM until 12:00 PM (noon) at the Newport News Marriott at City Center. The Peninsula Chamber hosts this event annually with an average of 80 companies from around the mid-Atlantic participating. The Hampton Roads Workforce Council is this year’s Presenting Sponsor. This year’s event will be open to the public and will be focused on connecting employers, offering real jobs, with potential employees. The Job Fair, in the past, has had special time dedicated to job seekers with military connections, including transitioning service members and their families, retired military members, reservists, and DOD civilians. These groups represent a significant source of potential employees with unique skills and valuable training, ready to step into new careers. Our focus on our military veterans has not changed, but this year the entire time will be open to all serious job seekers in an effort to assist them in securing productive, satisfying, and well-paying jobs, as we emerge from the response to the pandemic. This event is FREE to potential employees and job seekers, who are expected to attend in business attire with properly prepared resumes. Walk-ins are welcome; however, we suggest job seekers register online at to save time during check-in. Exhibits and sponsorships are available for purchase at Exhibitors will be offered a reduced rate for participation this year. If you are not looking to hire but would like to support those who have served or continue to serve, you can sponsor the 2022 Job Fair. Sponsorship packages are affordable and made to fit your budget.

For more information about attending the event, sponsoring, or securing a booth for your company, please contact Allie Hackett at or (757) 325-8162.
