The 7th annual statewide “Hiring Red, White & You!” Veterans Job Fair will be hosted by Workforce Solutions Southeast Texas this coming Thursday, November 8. The job fair – which is focused on connecting veterans and local employers – will be held at the downtown Beaumont Workforce Solutions Center on Park Street from 9:00 am – 12:00 noon. This special hiring event is held by all workforce development areas across Texas each year and provides the opportunity for employers, who value the military service and experience possessed by servicemen and servicewomen, to meet local veterans actively looking for work.

This year, more than 50 local employers, including several veteran-specific agencies, have registered to participate at the Southeast Texas event.  Employers’ hiring opportunities are varied and include engineers, drillers, case managers, truck drivers, HVAC maintenance workers, fire fighters, electricians, equipment operators, welders, restaurant managers, IT systems engineers, clerks and office assistants, as well as correctional officers.  As many as 2,000 veterans with active Work-in-Texas profiles have been contacted via email.  Veterans attending the event should bring their military ID card, resume, have an active Work-in-Texas profile, and be ready to interview. Workforce Center staff will be available the day of the hiring fair to assist job seekers.
