More than 130 employers will be hiring at the third annual “Hero2Hired” job fair for veterans, military members and military spouses on Thursday at the Idaho Center in Nampa. The employers, all of whom have open positions, will conduct interviews with interested job seekers on the spot. The event will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and is open to veterans, active duty military, members of the National Guard and Reserve, and military spouses. Job seekers and employers can still register online to participate at labor.idaho.gov; walk-ins also are welcome.
The event is sponsored by the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, Hero2Hired, the Idaho Department of Labor, the U.S. Department of Labor, the Idaho Center, and KTVB-TV; at last year’s job fair, 81 vets were hired on the spot and 327 additional hires were planned by participating companies over the next year.
