When you leave the military, the biggest question is "what's next?" It's a scary job market right now, but the skills you've received in the military make you highly marketable. The Legion sponsors dozens of veterans hiring fairs each year, and our employment experts also provide tips to writing resumes, networking and making a strong impression in the interview process.
Veterans and servicemembers are invited, Feb. 1, to New York City for a special hiring and career fair at the Department of Veterans Affairs New York Regional Office. The event, which runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., will welcome employers such as Wells Fargo, Verizon, Prudential and Time Warner Cable. The fair was coordinated in part by the office of Rep. Bob Turner, R-N.Y., and The American Legion, which helped recruit employers for the event who are ready to hire veterans.
The job fair is free of charge. Attendees are only asked to wear professional attire, bring plenty of updated résumés and be prepared to interview.
The Wounded Warrior Project, New York State Departments of Labor and Veteran Affairs, eBenefits and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce will also be on hand to provide various career services to veterans and active-duty military in attendance.
The event is located at:
The Department of Veterans Affairs New York Regional Office, Room 321
245 W. St.
New York, NY, 10014
Feb. 1, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
