If you're a veteran or military spouse who is interested in working in the cable, telecommunications, technology and software industries, Hiring Our Heroes is holding a job fair that might be of interest to you this week.
The organization is hosting a hiring event Tuesday, June 11 between 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. at the Washington Convention Center in association with the National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA), the Cable and Telecommunications Human Resources Association (CTRHA), and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation.
Interested job seekers are asked to register here. Walk-in job seekers are allowed, but veterans must provide proof of service. The event will include on-site interviews and testing for jobs, as well as one-on-one mentoring sessions on resume writing, resume building, and interviewing techniques for job seekers.
The event will be held in Hall D of the Convention Center, which is located at 801 Mount Vernon Place NW and can be reached by taking the Yellow or Green line to the Mount Vernon Square Metro station.
Hiring Our Heroes is a nationwide initiative with the goal of helping veterans and military spouses find good jobs. Since launching in March 2011, Hiring Our Heroes has helped more than 108,000 veterans and military spouses find meaningful employment. Currently, the organization is campaigning with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, National Chamber Foundation, and Capital One to get the business community to hire 500,000 veterans and military spouses by the end of 2014.
