About Hiring Our Heroes Chicago – Job opportunities for veterans and spouses
The US Chamber of Commerce is joining forces with the Chicagoland and Illinois Chambers of Commerce to host a transition workshop for veterans and their spouses during March 2011. This event is free and will take place at the Hyatt Regency Chicago at 151 E. Wacker Drive.
The transition workshop, provided by Monster, will occur on March 16, 2011 from 1:30 to 5:00 PM. Veterans and their spouses are welcome to attend the workshop, which will include instruction on networking, resume tips, job hunting strategies, and interview techniques.
There is a separate hiring fair which will take place on March 24, 2011 also at Hyatt Regency Chicago from 8:00 AM to 3:30 PM and will include over 70 companies and public sector organizations. All of them will offer job opportunities in the Chicago area, and some will have positions available nationally. The event will be moderated by Kevin Schmiegel, Vice President of the United States Chamber of Commerce, and will feature high profile, motivational guest speakers who are veterans themselves.
