5th Annual Job Fair at U.S.VETS – Barbers Point
On Friday October 4th, U.S.VETS – Barber’s Point held their 5th Annual Job Fair. The fair was both for veterans in our program, and for active-duty personnel and their spouses from all branches of service. The job fair provided an opportunity to meet employers, get help filling out applications and polishing résumés, and even schedule job interviews.
31 different employers came out to the job fair to meet interested veteran workers, including 53 of our VIP (Veteran in Progress) participants, 2 ADVANCE participants, and about 125 active-duty military personnel and their spouses. The job fair created opportunities for job seekers to network with many different companies who understand the value of hiring veterans, and offered valuable resources to help veterans find employment.
