Fill positions at Hiring Our Heroes job expo for veterans Sept. 20
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the military-to-civilian recruitment firm RecruitMilitary are collaborating on a hiring event for military veterans at Paul Brown Stadium on Thursday, September 20. The event, a Hiring Our Heroes/RecruitMilitary Veteran Opportunity Expo, is part of a nationwide initiative to increase the hiring of veterans by producing special career fairs. RecruitMilitary is inviting veterans who already have civilian work experience, men and women who are transitioning from active duty to civilian life, members of the National Guard and Reserves, military spouses, and other military family members.
Why Hire Veterans?
- Well-trained. Veterans possess skills that are critical for an organization to succeed. They are trained to be mission-oriented and to work as a team. They possess critical skills for organizational success including discipline, responsibility, respect, and unparalleled work ethic.
- Skills that overlap. Veterans have been trained in specific skills that greatly overlap civilian work. Whether driving an 18-wheel tractor-trailer or leading an organization in an executive position, the military provides people with the training to be successful in trades, as well as the experience and conditioning required for management positions.
- Diverse backgrounds. The military employs a highly diverse workforce. Approximately 45% of RecruitMilitary candidates are women and/or ethnic minorities, enabling you to connect with skilled and diverse candidates through our events.
When: September 20, 2012 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
Where: Paul Brown Stadium, Cincinnati, OH 45202
RecruitMilitary is offering companies that are members of the U.S. Chamber or Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber a 10% discount on the cost of their exhibition booths. RecruitMilitary will offer further price reductions for small businesses, and even lower rates for veteran-owned small businesses.
