Join us Wednesday, July 30, 2014 from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM for a job fair for veterans, active duty military members, guard and reserve members, and military spouses at the University of Chicago Ida Noyes Hall, 1212 East 59th Street, Chicago, Illinois 60637.
Veterans, active duty military members, guard and reserve members, and military spouses are invited to attend the first Nonprofit Hiring Fair for Veterans. This event, which is the first in the country, is specifically designed to present employment opportunities within local nonprofit organizations to the military community.
Veterans are reliable, trainable, flexible, and have a passion to serve their nation; these skills and experience make them suitable candidates for business and governmental roles and as stewards of the public trust in the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors.
This unique hiring event is limited to certified nonprofit organizations who are seeking to hire veterans and military spouses as full- or part-time employees, interns, or volunteers. For more information or questions regarding eligibility please contact Mark Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This hiring event is being conducted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, The Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs (IDVA), The Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES), The Social Enterprise Alliance, Chicago, Chapter, The American Legion, and the Student Veterans of America (SVA). The event is being co- sponsored by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the U.S. Department of Labor Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (DOL VETS), the Illinois Committee of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), NBC News, and other local partners.
An employment workshop aimed at helping veterans and transitioning service members leverage military experience to achieve civilian career goals will begin at 11:00 a.m.
The Hiring Our Heroes employment workshop consists of a classroom session beginning an hour and a half prior to the hiring fair. This will be followed one-on-one mentoring sessions with all pre-registered and walk-in participants to be conducted throughout the day. Mentoring sessions focus on resume building, resume writing, and interviewing techniques for all job-seeking veterans and service member participants.
Interested candidates must complete this free electronic pre-registration in order to participate. A maximum of 50 participants will be accepted for the full workshop. Once the pre-registered candidates have had their coaching sessions, the opportunity will be available for “walk-ins” to have a coaching session through the end of the fair. You can register for the workshop during the Job Seeker registration process.
