The Veterans Economic Communities Initiative will host an event Thursday, Aug. 11, to assist the vast number of employers in the Valley who are seeking to hire veterans.
The free hiring event takes place 12-2 p.m. at the El Zariba Shrine, 552 N. 40th St., just south of the Loop 202 freeway. It is geared toward veteran job seekers, active duty service members, Guard and Reserve members, and eligible spouses and is being conducted in partnership with the Arizona Office for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) and the Department of Labor.
There also will be a morning workshop from 9 to 11:30 a.m. for employers only to learn about the many resources that exist to hire veterans. Employers who attend will be allowed to have a table at the hiring event at no cost.
To register as a job seeker, call Scott Essex at 602-267-2404. To register as an employer, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 602-370-1425.
