In a cooperative effort between the U-S Chamber of Commerce, the Nebraska Department of Labor and the Nebraska National Guard, Governor Dave Heineman announced two upcoming Hiring Our Heroes job fairs in the state.
Governor Heineman says the state is proud to be part of this initiative to help veterans and military spouses find good jobs here in Nebraska. He says there are approximately 4,600 Army and Air National Guardsmen and women in the state and thousands more Nebraskans serve in the U-S Reserves and are active military.
The Omaha Hiring Our Heroes event will be the 10th in Nebraska since April of 2013. These job fairs have been held in Lincoln, Omaha, Norfolk, Alliance, Holdrege, Papillion, Beatrice and Grand Island. They served nearly 1,300 veterans and 300 employers.
On February 19th the U-S Chamber of Commerce, the Nebraska Department of Labor and the Nebraska National Guard will hold a Hiring Our Heroes job fair in Omaha at the DC Centre at 11830 Stonegate Drive from 10 am to 2 pm. There are 65 employers registered for that event. On April 1st an event will be held in Lincoln at the Lancaster Event Center at 4100 North 84th Street from 10 am to 2 pm.
