Bossier Chamber to host veterans’ job & resource fair Sept. 3

1205

The fall Veterans’ Job and Resource Fair is set for Thursday, September 3, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Bossier Civic Center.

The event is a program of the Bossier Chamber of Commerce, and sponsored by AEON PEC, Benteler Steel/Tube, Bossier Parish Community College, City of Bossier City, CSC, Goodwill Industries of NWLA, and ESGR.  Veterans, active duty military members and their spouses are welcome to attend the event.

This job fair marks the 10th military-related job fair for the Bossier Chamber since 2011.  Between 2011 and 2014, the job fairs have served more than 500 veteran job seekers and included over 150 business participants.  In addition to aiding veterans’ employment search, the fairs also help to share service programs that are offered to help meet the needs of those who have served our country.

The Chamber’s job fairs  provide an opportunity for businesses to identify well experienced and highly motivated veterans looking for work.  Barksdale’s recent change of command ceremony brings many spouses who are new to the area and will also be looking for jobs.  This free service helps to connect and transition the entire military family.
