Hiring Our Heroes partnership
Veterans, servicemembers and their spouses have been integrating into the civilian workforce in droves with the recent drawdowns, and thousands more are expected to follow in the very near future. If you’re among those making this transition, you can attend any of the complimentary hiring fairs being hosted by Hiring Our Heroes®, a nationwide initiative founded by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation in 2011 to help those in the military community find jobs.
To date, more than 21,600 veterans and military spouses have found jobs at the nearly 700 hiring fairs in all 50 states.
In support of this initiative, University of Phoenix established an annual education partnership with Hiring Our Heroes to sponsor Employment Workshops at 50 of its hiring fairs. The two-hour workshops — limited to 50 participants each — will include:
- A classroom demonstration of how to use Phoenix Career Services™ online tools — the Career Interest Profiler, Job Market Research Tool and Military Skills Translator Tool — and the University’s Financial Plan tool.
- One-on-one coaching sessions focusing on resumé-building and interviewing techniques.
Register early for the Employment Workshops. After the 50-participant limit is reached, coaching sessions will be held for walk-ins as available.
