(HOUSTON) Workforce Solutions and more than 150 local employers and veterans service organizations will be on hand to welcome thousands of military heroes to the state’s largest job fair as Hiring Red, White & You! returns to Minute Maid Park for a seventh year.
Hiring Red, White & You! the state-wide hiring initiative sponsored by the Texas Workforce Commission, Texas Veterans Commission, and the Texas Medical Center, connects military veterans, their families and qualified candidates to employers offering high wage jobs in a variety of industries. To participate, employers must offer at least 10 open positions with starting pay of $15 per hour or higher. Family members of veterans are highly encouraged to attend the career fair as well.
“Last year we had more than 2,500 veterans and their family members come through Minute Maid Park to meet with employers,” said Mike Temple, Director of Workforce Solutions. “Both employers and those looking for a new career or career change can benefit tremendously from this event.”
Workforce Solutions career offices throughout its 13-county Gulf Coast region offer year-round services to veterans transitioning to the civilian workforce including help to translate military service experience onto a resume, job search counseling, and interview skills.
