The Coast Guard has no waiting lists and are offering guaranteed schools, bonuses, and advanced pay grades for applicants that meet qualification requirements. If a young person enlists he/she can be in recruit training (boot camp) as early as 60 days. Of course on the officer side of the house, the application process is longer for Officer Candidate School or the Coast Guard Academy. For Coast Guard military recruiting go to www.GoCoastGuard.com.

    Washington DC. – FAPAC held another career fair on April 22, 2016 on the Rockville in partnership with Montgomery College and the Universities at Shady Grove. The event attracted over 70 employers including more than 40 federal agencies. The event held in the large gymnasium at the Rockville College campus. Before the end of the day over 1,200 job seekers walked through the door.  Team of volunteers from the sponsors and FAPAC helped to make the event go smoothly despite lines of attendees waiting to speak to the recruiters at times. The team also collected valuable information on the attendees in feedback to improve future events. With the larger student body and the community around Rockville we attracted more AAPI attendees. Thanks to our partner the Universities at Shady Grove for uploading additional pictures of the Job Fair at https://www.flickr.com/photos/usgcisc/albums/72157667542345151. Plans are underway to hold the next career fair in Northern Virginia in autumn after school begins.
