Nationwide Initiative Helping To Connect Veterans With Employers

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation is hosting a Military Hiring Expo at the AT&T Center with Hiring Our Heroes, a nationwide initiative that connects veterans with employers. Other sponsors include The San Antonio Spurs, Citi, Lockheed Martin, and USAA.  

More than 70 employers ranging from big to small businesses are expected to participate in the fair to help veterans find employment. The event will also include a free employment workshop, focusing on resume-building, job search tools, and interview techniques. Pre-registered attendees will also be eligible to win tickets to the Spurs vs. New Orleans Pelicans game that night.

The night before, on Feb. 2, Hiring Our Heroes will host a networking event for spouses of military and veterans. They will have an opportunity to interact with local business leaders, recruitment heads for national companies, and military spouse service agencies. 

All attendees must register prior to the event. For event times, locations, and to register, visit hiringourheroes.org. Veterans must provide proof of service.
