In March of 2011, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce launched its Hiring Our Heroes program, a nationwide effort to help veterans and military spouses find meaningful employment. The Chamber started the program in partnership with the Department of Labor Veterans Employment and Training Service (DOL VETS), to improve public-private sector coordination in local communities, where veterans and their families are returning every day. Working with our extensive network of state and local chambers, DOL VETS, the Military Spouse Employment Partnership, the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), NBCUniversal, and other strategic partners, we will do a better job of matching veteran and military spouse talent with career opportunities in the private sector.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s “Hiring Our Heroes” Hiring Fair sponsored by Hero2Hired (H2H) and Ryder System, Inc., scheduled for April 11, 2012, at the For Community & Performing Arts Center is committed to making this one-of–a-kind FREE hiring fair a win-win for employers and veteran/military spouse job seekers.
