Veterans Job Fair Thursday, August 16, at TCF Bank Stadium

Via an announcement from RecruitMilitary:

Veterans Job Fair Thursday at TCF Bank Stadium: Jobs for Military Spouses 

Recently, the President signed a bill to provide expanded federal job opportunities to military spouses. This new bill is part of an executive action being taken to promote military spouse hiring across the federal government, and the nation at large.

According to a recently released report from the Council of Economic Advisers, “American military spouses, who number approximately 690,000, are a diverse population. Like their active duty husbands and wives, they come from varying racial and ethnic backgrounds, and bring a diversity of skills to the labor market. But military spouses face a particular challenge: they often find their labor market activities, including choices over whether to work, how many hours, and in what occupation, to be subject to the geographic and temporal constraints imposed by their active duty spouse.” 

This Thursday, August 16, Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and RecruitMilitary are providing Minneapolis-area military spouses and veterans the opportunity to explore new career opportunities at the Minneapolis Veterans Job Fair at the TCF Bank Stadium from 11am to 3pm.  The event will feature nearly 60 exhibitors looking to fill hundreds of job openings – with military spouses and transitioning military personnel as two of their top hiring targets.  Facebook Event
