Join the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the U.S. Department of Labor, the U.S. Army’s Fort Bragg, Army Career and Alumni Program, Soldier for Life, Installation Management Command, and other partners for a free career forum and jobs summit for service members, veterans, and military spouses on Fort Bragg, North Carolina, on August 12-13, 2014.
This summit is free and open to all interested military, federal and state agencies, businesses and employers looking to hire veterans, and other community leaders.
The two-day jobs summit offers employers and community leaders a rare and free opportunity to gather with veteran employment leaders in the public and private sectors. Participants will have a chance to hear from and network with senior officials from the United States government, the U.S. Army, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the U.S. Department of Labor, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, and other recognized military organizations as they share resources, advice, and experience.
The summit will feature interactive forums and workshops focused on developing strong veteran and transitioning service member hiring initiatives, answering tough questions and dispelling myths about veteran hiring, and encouraging participants to share their own company or community’s best practices with key government agencies and decision-makers. Employers of every size and community groups from across the country are encouraged to sign up today and take their commitment to military hiring to the next level.
The summit will also feature seminars, roundtables, panel discussions, recruiter training, and facilitated conversations focused on improving competitive employment for service members and veterans.
All of the lessons learned will bring together job-seekers and employers and culminate in a military National Career Forum on August 13.
