Job Fair Information For Veteran’s And Active Duty Military This Thursday

We just celebrated our country’s military, past and present, during Veteran’s Day, but what happens after you’ve gotten out of the military and you’re struggling to re-enter civilian life?

This Thursday, a series of job fairs called Hiring Red, White & You! will be held to help veteran’s and active duty military transitioning into the civilian world, as well as help their spouses find work.

The job fair, organized by Workforce Solutions Upper Rio Grande, will be from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Norman Haley Employment Center, 300 E. Main in Downtown El Paso.

The event is open to the public, but is primarily geared toward helping veterans and their spouses.

It is free for both employers and job-seekers.

Ninety-nine employers that have immediate job openings totaling nearly 1,800 jobs will be at the job fair, according to Workforce Solutions Upper Rio Grande Chief Executive Officer Lorenzo Reyes.

Employers include Army and Air Force Exchange Service, the City of El Paso, El Paso Independent School District, El Paso Community College, FirstLight Federal Credit Union, Home Depot, the Hobbs, N.M., Police Department, Raytheon, the Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas Gas Service and University Medical Center.

Reyes said veterans have a number of skills that make them valuable employees, like working well under pressure, strong leadership skills and can work in teams.

If you plan on attending, you should dress professionally, be ready to get interviewed, and bring plenty of copies of résumés.
