Employer Register Now for the 2017 Hiring Red, White and You! Veterans Job Fair
Southeast Texas invites employers to participate as we host the 6th Annual Hiring, Red, White & You! Veterans Job Fair, on Thursday, November 9, 2017. This year, the event will be held at the Beaumont Workforce Solutions Center, located at 510 Park Street, from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon. As in past years, this event is focused on connecting skilled, dedicated US military veterans to employers who have job opportunities. Participating Veterans and their eligible spouses will receive a lanyard which will identify them as a Veteran.

The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) has supported Veteran employment as an effective tool for successful reintegration into local communities throughout Texas. TWC expanded the original healthcare and medical focus of the job fair, in partnership with the Texas Medical Center and the Office of the Governor, to include all industries such as manufacturing, construction, engineering, transportation and energy. In the five years of Red, White and You!, over 300 Southeast Texas employers have connected with as many as 1,100 Veterans. Over all, TWC estimates there are 927,000 Veterans in Texas eligible for work. Data provided by TWC indicated employers hired 1,660 Veterans in Southeast Texas in 2016. Businesses that hire and retain Veterans are eligible for certain incentives through the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) program.

We encourage employers to register soon; space is limited. There is no cost to participate. Please click this link to register now. For assistance, please contact Myrna Harris, at 409-719-4763. We look forward to seeing your company represented at Hiring Red, White & You!
