Walk-ins welcome for vets job fair

Walk-ins will be welcome for Tuesday’s “Hiring Our Heroes” job fair to be held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Dayton Marriott at 1414 S. Patterson Boulevard.

The job fair is open for veterans and spouses. It will include more than 70 employers with jobs available now. It’s open to all ranks and levels of experience. Companies range from America’s largest employers to dozens of small companies from the region.

The event will also include a free General Electric-sponsored employment workshop that features one-on-one mentoring sessions on resume building, resume writing, and interviewing techniques for all job-seeking veterans and service member participants.

Since its launch in March 2011, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s “Hiring Our Heroes” has been able to help nearly 100,000 veterans and military spouses find meaningful employment.

The Chamber said that more than 14,000 of those hires came directly from more than 430 hiring fairs the program has held nationwide over two years.

An additional 80,000 veterans and military spouses have been hired as a part of Hiring 500,000 Heroes, a national campaign announced by the Chamber, National Chamber Foundation, and Capital One, the Chamber said.

Interested job seekers should register for free at hoh.greatjob.net.
