Veterans "Hiring Red, White & You!" job fair Thursday in Arlington

Workforce Solutions, the Texas Veterans Commission, and Texas Workforce Commission are putting on a job fair for veterans, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Thursday (Nov. 15), at the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame at the Ballpark in Arlington, 1000 Ballpark Way in Arlington.

Here's the bullet on it from Workforce Solutions:

This job fair is part of TWC’s Hiring Red, White & You! Campaign. The campaign is a statewide event with job fairs scheduled in 28 local workforce development areas on November 15. 

Hiring Red, White & You! aims to connect Texas veterans with Texas employers who value the skills, experience, discipline, and other exceptional qualities inherent with a military background. Hiring Red, White & You! will help provide opportunities for employment to the estimated 922,000 veterans in the Texas workforce.

“The talent and experiences our veterans bring back from their service in the military are an important, and, all too often, untapped resource for our communities,” Gov. Rick Perry said. “The Hiring Red, White & You! Campaign is a great opportunity to help veterans utilize their skills to get a job in Texas, and help employers find talented and experienced individuals to fill open job opportunities.”

Over 100 local employers will be attending the job fair at the Ballpark in Arlington including  AT&T, Bank of America, Bell Helicopter, CVS/Caremark, Dallas Fire Rescue, JPMorgan Chase, and Southwest Airlines. Attending employers are looking to fill thousands of open positions. Registration is not required for veterans seeking employment.  However, veterans are asked to register with WorkInTexas.com prior to attending a job fair.
