“Hiring Our Heroes” Job Fair for Veterans and Military Spouses

Monday, February 25, 2013

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s National Chamber Foundation and SPIRIT 105.3 are pleased to host “Hiring Our Heroes – Seattle,” a hiring fair for veterans and military spouses on March 5, 2013. Held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Bell Harbor Conference Center (2211 Alaskan Way Seattle, WA 98121), the fair offers veterans and military spouses with exposure to job opportunities of all entry levels and experience from more than 65 employers. Companies range from America's biggest businesses to dozens of local companies, including Amazon, F5 Networks, the Port of Seattle and Starwood Hotels and Resorts.

Since March 2011, Hiring Our Heroes has been a nationwide initiative to help veterans and military spouses find meaningful employment, helping more than 14,000 veterans and military spouses to obtain jobs in the last two years.

With the goal to create a movement across America in hundreds of communities where veterans and military families return every day, Hiring Our Heroes has hosted more than 400 hiring fairs in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia. This will be the first ever hiring fair hosted in Washington state.

Interested job seekers can register for free online. Walk-in job seekers are allowed and veterans must provide proof of service.
