San Diego vets and job-hunters get a fair chance

November 6, 2013 by  

Veterans and jobseekers will soon have an opportunity to connect with employers who need their talents.

Tomorrow, a job fair, officially called the Honor-a-Hero Hire-a-Vet Job and Resource Fair, takes place at the Valley View Casino Center, formerly known as the Sports Arena. The event brings a number of job services together in one spot to make it easy for veterans and others looking for work to use their time effectively.

In the past, this particular job fair has been successful in matching employers with hundreds of qualified veterans. At the same time, it allows veterans to speak to employers who have high-quality positions open for people with their qualifications. In addition, there will be a number of agencies in attendance who offer services to help people find work. Veterans and others can speak with various representatives about training options, educational opportunities, careers, apprenticeships, and other services. The event is free and open to the public.

Employers attending the event cover a wide range of fields, from local and state government agencies to colleges and universities to entertainment facilities. Among the companies slated to attend are the Chula Vista Police Department, Cubic Corporation, the FBI, FedEx Ground, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, and SeaWorld San Diego.

Fair organizers could work with a flyer printing company to create a mailer for local residents with a map of the employers, as well as directions to the venue and the hours of the event, which are 10:00 am until 2:00 pm
