Helping our US Military Veterans successfully transition from their military careers is something we at TWC place a very high emphasis on. We work hand in hand with the Texas Veterans Commission (TVC) to ensure that every veteran who wants or needs it, receives all the assistance the Texas workforce system can provide.
To that end, via a partnership with Governor Rick Perry, Texas Medical Center surgeon Dr. James Henry “Red” Duke, Jr., Texas Workforce Solutions, and TVC, let me introduce:
“Hiring Red, White & You.” Hiring Red, White & You is a big, coordinated job fair event that will take place in each of the state’s 28 Workforce Development Areas on Nov. 15, 2012, with the main focus being to help address the employment needs of Texas veterans.
This unprecedented statewide initiative will help Texas employers interested in hiring veterans for their experience, discipline and other exceptional qualities, easily connect with Texas veterans. These job fairs are free to all veterans and employers, though pre-registration is encouraged.
If you’re an employer interested in participating, please contact your nearest Workforce Solutions Office.
If you’re a veteran (or an employer) and would like more information regarding times and locations, or to get contact information for the event in your area, please visit this webpage. There’s also a PSA on YouTube easily found here. And if you still have questions or want more information, feel free to contact TWC at firstname.lastname@example.org or 512-936-3103.
