"Hiring Our Heroes" Job Fair for Veterans and Military Spouses

SEATTLE, WA—U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s National Chamber Foundation and SPIRIT 105.3 will host “Hiring Our Heroes – Seattle,” a hiring fair for veterans and military spouses on March 5th, 2013 from 10:00am-2:00pm at Bell Harbor Conference Center (2211 Alaskan Way Seattle, WA 98121). Jobs of all entry levels and experience are being offered to veterans and military spouses from more than 65 employers. Companies range from America's biggest businesses to dozens of local companies.

Since March 2011, Hiring Our Heroes has been a nationwide initiative to help veterans and military spouses find meaningful employment. More than 14,000 veterans and military spouses have obtained jobs through this campaign over the last 2 years. The goal is to create a movement across America in hundreds of communities where veterans and military families return every day. Hiring Our Heroes has hosted more than 400 hiring fairs in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. This will be the first ever hosted in Washington State. They strive to see a great impact and to serve more veterans and military spouses than they already have.
