The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation and the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) will host “Hiring Our Heroes – Track to Success,” a hiring fair for Veterans and military spouses. The fair will include a high concentration of transportation companies as well as several other private and public employers. More than 25 employers are expected to participate with jobs available for Veterans and military spouses of all ranks and levels of experience.
Since its launch in March 2011, Hiring Our Heroes has been able to help more than 108,000 Veterans and military spouses find meaningful employment. More than 18,400 of those hires came directly from more than 520 hiring fairs the program has held nationwide. An additional 90,000 Veterans and military spouses have been hired as a part of Hiring 500,000 Heroes, a national campaign announced by the U.S. Chamber, National Chamber Foundation and Capital One, to engage the business community in committing to hire half a million Veterans and military spouses by the end of 2014. Thus far, more than 900 businesses of all sizes have pledged to hire 230,000 heroes toward this goal.
