In partnership with CompTIA, Robert Half, Veterans VocRehab and others, the free event will include several presentations focusing on transitioning into an information technology career.  Topics presented will include the CompTIA Troops to Tech Careers Initiative, Microsoft Tracks and Certifications, 2013 IT Hiring and Compensation Trends, Transitioning Out from a Veteran’s Perspective and Vocational Rehabilitation Services, among others.
