It’s National Hire a Veteran Day and employers want you!

If you're looking for a job - or considering changing jobs - today is a great day to check out different employers' veteran hiring initiatives.  Hire Our Heroes is holding a virtual career fair, plus you can access our year-round resources on the Connecting Vets Find Help | Employment page.

Hire Our Heroes'  Virtual Career Fair runs from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time today so register here and connect with companies looking for the unique skills sets veterans have to offer.

Hire Our Heroes, a nonprofit operated by veterans for veterans, established National Hire a Veteran Day on July 25, 2017. The goal, of course, is to raise awareness of veteran hiring initiatives and veteran unemployment while also establishing a platform where employers and veterans can network.

To search for employers taking advantage of Hire a Veteran Day, you can search twitter with #HireAVeteranDay.

For more resources, check Connecting Vets' Find Help | Employment page, which lists links to transition programs, employment assistance and hiring initiatives especially for veterans.  Also, the Veteran Jobs Mission lists over 100 companies with veteran hiring initiatives. The Veteran Jobs Mission has hired 455,831 veterans as of March 31, 2018.
