Hire a vet! U.S. Chamber to host job fair for veterans and military spouses in Seattle

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce's National Chamber Foundation, along with lead sponsor Capital One, will host 'Hiring Our Heroes - Seattle,' a hiring fair for veterans and military spouses, early next month.

More than 65 employers are expected to participate, with jobs available for veterans and military spouses of all ranks and levels of experience. Companies range from America's biggest employers to dozens of local small businesses.

Because of DADT repeal, employers can expect to see some openly Gay and Lesbian service members at the event - something that would've been nearly unthinkable just two years ago.

Since its launch in March 2011, Hiring Our Heroes has held more than 400 hiring fairs nationwide, which have helped over 14,000 veterans and military spouses find employment. This event is also part of Hiring 500,000 Heroes, a national campaign to engage the business community in committing to hire 500,000 veterans and military spouses by the end of 2014. Thus far, more than 800 businesses of all sizes have pledged to hire 211,000 heroes toward this goal, with 93,000 hired since March 2012.

Hiring Our Heroes - Seattle is scheduled for Tuesday, March 5, from 9 a.m. to noon, at Bell Harbor International Conference Center (2211 Alaskan Way).

SIGN UP ONLINE
Advance registration is strongly recommended at https://hoh.greatjob.net. Walk-in job seekers are also welcome and should bring proof of service.

This hiring event is being held in partnership with the U.S. Department of Labor Veterans' Employment and Training Service (DOL VETS), the Washington Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, The American Legion, and various local partners.

The National Chamber Foundation, a nonprofit affiliate of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, is dedicated to identifying and fostering public debate on emerging critical issues. It provides business and government leaders with insight and resources to address tomorrow's challenges.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world's largest business federation representing the interests of more than three million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.
