Hiring Our Heroes

Last month, I had the opportunity to attend a job fair hosted by Hiring Our Heroes, a program of the US Chamber of Commerce Foundation that was launched in March 2011 as a nationwide initiative to help veterans and military spouses find meaningful employment. They host free jobs fairs nationwide to assist transitioning military and military spouses with their job search. Workshops focusing on resume writing, military skill translation, and interviewing are also available. Through December 31, 2012, more than 18,400 veterans and military spouses have obtained employment thanks to Hiring Our Heroes job fairs and employment assistance. Additional information and support can be found on their website,
