Hiring Heroes 2013 Job Fair Schedule Announced

January 14, 2013 |

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce will hold dozens of Hiring Our Heroes job fairs for veterans this year. To find one near you, visit the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Hiring Our Heroes Fairs webpage. If you’re unfamiliar with the program, below is a brief history from the Hiring Our Heroes website. For a comprehensive schedule of other veteran job fairs across the country, visit the Military.com Veteran Jobs Center.

In March of 2011, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s National Chamber Foundation launched Hiring Our Heroes, a nationwide initiative to help veterans and military spouses find meaningful employment. Working with our network of 1600 state and local chambers and other strategic partners from the public, private, and non-profit sectors, our goal is to create a movement across America in hundreds of local communities where veterans and military families return every day.

Hiring Our Heroes has hosted more than 390 hiring fairs in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia; more than 14,100 have gotten jobs.

We have significantly expanded our efforts in 2012 with a goal of hosting hiring fairs in 400 communities, the establishment of a stand-alone program for military spouses, and a sustained campaign to enlist the commitments from the small business community to hire veterans and military spouses by the end of 2014.
