From the Illinois Department of Veterans' Affairs:
Exceptional Opportunity for Veterans!



The state's largest veteran hiring fair is back!  The 2014 Chicago Hiring Our Heroes Event is set for March 26 and we need your help to spread the word to any and all veterans, service members and military family members who may be interested.



When & Where:


10:00 AM - 2:00 PM        Wednesday, March 26, 2014


Univ. of Illinois at Chicago Forum

725 W. Roosevelt Road, Chicago, IL 60608 (Directions)



This event - which utilizes an innovative model featuring candidate pre-screening, applicant-employer matching, and onsite interviews - will put veteran job-seekers in interaction with over 100 registered employers, all of whom have job openings right now.  Veterans will have a chance to showcase the skills, integrity, and discipline that set them apart from the average job-seeker, and employers will have a one-of-a-kind opportunity to recruit, interview, and hire America's future business leaders.  


This event is NO-COST for job seekers.


Advanced registration is strongly suggested for veterans, military, and military family members interested in being selected for applicant-employer matching and on-site interviews. 






You can help by forwarding and promoting this opportunity to any and all that may be interested.


Sponsored by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Illinois Department of Veterans' Affairs, the Illinois Department of Employment Security , the U.S. Department of Labor Veterans' Employment and Training Service, the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, and The American Legion, the Hiring Our Heroes program represents an extraordinary joint effort on the part of employers, nonprofits and civic organizations to create job opportunities for military veterans and their spouses through personalized engagement with corporate partners. 




Please visit the  Hiring Ours Heroes webpage for details and registration, otherwise contact Marcus Simonetti at or 312-814-7204
