Earlier this month, we posted a list of hiring events taking place across the country and we promised to compile a new list for each successive month. These events are the result of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, VA, and the White House collaborating to help Veterans find work through the “Hiring Our Heroes” program.

Below, you’ll find a list of hiring events located throughout the country from August 2 through August 28, 2012. Click on the state to find out when and where the event is being held. If you don’t see your state listed, don’t worry! We’ll put together a new list of hiring fairs for the month of September in a few weeks—so be sure to check back! You can also see a complete list of this year’s hiring events here.

    For those military job seekers that do not see a hiring event in their city, we strongly recommend checking out the free services on H2H.jobs

    Hero 2 Hired isn’t just another job site. We are a Yellow Ribbon-funded project with a special mission: to THANK YOU for your service by helping you find your perfect career.

    We know that searching for a new job is a big undertaking. H2H was created to make it easy for Reserve Component service members to connect to and find jobs with military-friendly companies who are looking for employees with your training and skills.

    This will be short and to the point. Don’t Veterans in Oregon and Washington need jobs, too?

    I am really pleased to see just how proactive the military has become in working with our brother and sister veterans. It comes a bit late for me as an Alzheimers patient, but I still feel respected by our Federal Government.

    Thank you all!

      Due to the high cost of living, many veterans are moving to Florida, but did not see any hiring fairs scheduled for here.
