Veterans service organization AMVETS (American Veterans) will host a Veteran Job Fair, a hiring event for veterans, military and spouses, at the Memphis Cook Convention Center on Wednesday, August 13, 2014. Call of Duty Endowment and the Greater Memphis Chamber will co-sponsor the event, which will run from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.
“We expect more than 40 employers looking to hire veterans not just for local positions but many with opportunities across the nation,” said AMVETS Career Specialist Gema Moreno. “We encourage career-seeking veterans and current military personnel who are transitioning from active duty to civilian life, members of the National Guard and reserves, military spouses, and other military family members.”
A free seminar will be offered prior to the event at 10:00 a.m., entitled “The Military to Civilian Transition: Leverage the Power of Your Personal Brand.” Internationally regarded branding expert Lida Citroen has worked with returning veterans across various channels, teaching them personal branding, marketing resources and social media skills to better aid their relevancy in a competitive job search. All veterans are welcome to attend this session that will provide information that can immediately be put to use with participating employers.
