Milwaukee County Hosting Job Fair for Veterans
Milwaukee County will hold a Job Fair for Veterans Thursday, October 6, from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the Milwaukee County War Memorial Center.
As part of the joint effort between Milwaukee County Veterans Services, the Zablocki VA Medical Center and local representatives of Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development, Office of Veterans Services, more than 80 employers will be present to discuss employment opportunities with veterans and their immediate family.
Included among the employers are 8 trucking companies, seven health services organizations, as well as federal/state/ Milwaukee county governments, the Milwaukee Brewers, Eaton, trade unions, and others.
Also available at the job fair are computers for filling out online applications and resume-editing assistance from Springfield College.
“Our veterans deserve our gratitude for their sacrifices in service of our nation’s safety and they also deserve our continued support when they come home. That’s why since taking office it’s been one of my top priorities to expand and improve services for veterans and their families,” County Executive Chris Abele said. “And to the many businesses and community partners who will be on hand at the job fair, thank you for your work at this important event.”
