Workforce Solutions Southeast Texas will join Governor Greg Abbot, the Texas
Workforce Commission, the Texas Medical Center and the Texas Veterans
Commission leadership, along with other workforce development boards and
partners, to host the 9th Annual Hiring Red, White & You Veterans Job Fair (HRWY).
The state-wide event will be held for the first-time on virtual platforms.
For the past eight years, the HRWY initiative brought together workforce
development boards, employers, educational and training institutions,
and support agencies to assist Veterans in their transition to civilian
life. Securing employment and a meaningful career is critical to the
transition for many veterans as they return home. Data provided through
the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicate Texas has one of the largest
populations of Veterans in the nation. Veterans actively seeking
employment, as many as 967,000 state-wide, face an even bigger challenge
looking for work due to restrictions brought on by COVID-19.
The virtual HRWY event, powered by BRAZEN platform, will allow employers
to interact on-line with Veterans, their spouses, and other job seekers,
and share employment opportunities. Employers may offer videos, informational
brochures, and job applications electronically to the job seekers.
Employers can schedule on-line interviews with qualified candidates.
Booths are customized for each participating employer with their company
logos. Workforce center staff will assist employers design their Booths,
post job openings, and prescreen applicant's resumes, as requested.
