Hiring Our Heroes: August Hiring Fairs Across the Country

Earlier this month, we posted a list of hiring events taking place across the country and we promised to compile a new list for each successive month. These events are the result of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, VA, and the White House collaborating to help Veterans find work through the “Hiring Our Heroes” program.

Below, you’ll find a list of hiring events located throughout the country from August 2 through August 28, 2012. Click on the state to find out when and where the event is being held. If you don’t see your state listed, don’t worry! We’ll put together a new list of hiring fairs for the month of September in a few weeks—so be sure to check back!

  1. I am an RN (Vietnam Era Vet) living in Tampa area and have submitted an application and have not rcvd any response for weeks.

  2. I am really pleased to see just how proactive the military has become in working with our brother and sister veterans. It comes a bit late for me as an Alzheimers patient, but I still feel respected by our Federal Government.

    Thank you all!
