|VA for Vets Hiring Fair
Next week in Detroit, the Department of Veteran's Affairs is sponsoring a three-day hiring fair, with more than 24,000 jobs available to our nation's veterans.
To find out more, check out VAforVets.VA.gov/Detroit.
The jobs are not just in Detroit in fact, more than 80 percent of the jobs are located throughout the country.
And if you can't make it to the job fair, you can access job opportunities by video teleconference from Fort Knox, Kentucky; Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri; Fort Riley, Kansas; Fort Drum, New York; and Rock Island Arsenal, Illinois.
These video teleconference sites are also available from Adjutant General offices in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Go to VAforVets.VA.gov/Detroit and click the link for Virtual Participation in the left navigation for more information on how to connect with an employment opportunity virtually.
In just the last year, more than 1,600 companies have hired more than 70,000 veterans and military spouses through Joining Forces. Many of these companies are now headed to Detroit to hire even more.
It's clear that companies throughout America want to hire veterans and this is an opportunity that can't be missed! So if you know a veteran looking for a job or a service member transitioning out of the military make sure you send this email to him or her.
Brad Cooper is the executive director of Joining Forces. Learn more about the Joining Forces initiative: Visit JoiningForces.gov
