Marine Corps Systems Command Job Fair, May 22, Fredericksburg

Serve your country, support Marines in harm's way

You can serve your country and improve your quality of life by working at Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC), where every day is mission critical. MCSC supports the Marine warfighters currently serving in harm's way in Afghanistan and other areas around the world. The Command, headquartered at Marine Corps Base Quantico in Northern Virginia 35 miles south of Washington, D.C., outfits Marines with literally everything they drive, shoot and wear. This team, comprised of professional civilian Marines and active-duty Marines, equips young volunteer warfighters to win. These civil servants listen, learn, research, develop, test, acquire and sustain – whatever it takes to get Marines what they need, when they need it – efficiently and for the best value possible.

You could become a part of this remarkable team by attending MCSC's Job Fair on Saturday, May 22, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the University of Mary Washington's College of Graduate and Professional Studies, 121 University Blvd., Fredericksburg, Va. The Command is offering exciting civilian careers in Engineering, Program Management, Operations Research/Cost Estimating, Information Technology Management, Contracting, Financial Management and Logistics Management. The majority of positions are located at MCSC Headquarters, with a Virginia Railway Express station in close proximity. Some program offices are located in brand-new office buildings and facilities off base in Stafford, Va.

It is recommended that resumes be submitted prior to the event by following instructions provided at www.marcorsyscom.usmc.mil and clicking on “May 2010 Job Fair.” Qualified candidates who send in resumes may be invited for a pre-scheduled interview on the day of the Job Fair. However, submitting a resume before the fair is not required for attendance. Applicants will be evaluated based on a comparison of position requirements against the quality and extent of the experience or related education as reflected in their resume. Applicants are encouraged to bring plenty of resumes and to allow ample time for resume screening and potential on-the-spot interviews.

MCSC, the U.S. Marine Corps and the Department of the Navy are equal employment opportunity employers. All qualified candidates will receive consideration without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, marital status, political affiliation, sexual orientation or any other non-merit factor. Applicants requiring reasonable accommodations for any part of the application and hiring process should contact MCSC directly. Determinations on requests for reasonable accommodations will be made on a case-by-case basis.

MCSC employees use highly effective, streamlined and innovative business processes. The Command works hard to be timely and consistent in providing quality systems and equipment to the operating forces, and then expertly manages the systems and equipment during the entire lifecycle. The technological advantage MCSC provides helps Marines to shoot straighter, move faster and communicate more effectively so they can continue our Marine Corps' proud and valorous tradition of winning battles in every clime and place. The Command cares deeply about each and every individual Marine and works on a daily basis with one thought in mind; that is, to provide our Marines with the systems and equipment necessary to ensure they return home to their families safe and sound. As such, jobs at MCSC definitely make a difference. At MCSC, job satisfaction is at its highest level.
