The Salem Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center, Virginia Employment Commission (VEC), Virginia Wounded Warrior Program, and Roanoke VA Regional Office, are partnering to sponsor a VETERANS ONLY job fair. The event will be held in the Salem VAMC Auditorium (Building 5) on Tuesday, April 30, 2013 from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm.
Thirty employers will be available to discuss job opportunities and offer assistance to Veterans in beginning the application process. Staff will be on hand to assist with application submissions, resume preparation, and providing tips and tools to help Veterans get hired. Information on Veteran benefits and resources will be available.
“We realize many Veterans returning from military service are faced with challenges in finding gainful employment. We are very proud to be in partnership with VEC, Wounded Warrior Program, and many area employers who have expressed an interest in hiring and working with Veterans. Veterans bring a wide array of experience, skills, and training which make them ideal candidates for many positions,” stated Dr. Miguel LaPuz, Salem VAMC Director.
