“Hiring Our Heroes” is a nationwide effort initiated by the U.S. Chamber in March of 2011 to help veterans and military spouses to find meaningful employment. Since that time, 220 hiring fairs have taken place in 48 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia resulting in more than 10,400 hirings.
On April 10, 2013, a Hiring Our Heroes fair will be held from 9:00 a.m. until noon at the Jaffa Shrine in Altoona. The event is free for both employers and job seekers.
Employers will not be required to pay for exhibitor space, they must at least verify that they have legitimate jobs to offer.
Any employers interested in reserving exhibitor space should go to HOH.greatjob.net.
Job seekers can register on that same site to attend the fair.
Space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
