WXIA -- Hiring Our Heroes is bringing new jobs to Atlanta for the military and their families this year.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and American Legion are hosting a free job fair for veterans, active duty military members, guard and reserve members, and their spouses Wednesday, Jan. 29, from 9 am until noon at American Legion Post 251 in Duluth.
Hiring Our Heroes, a program launched in March of 2011, is a nationwide initiative to find military members and their families meaningful employment.
Last year, Hiring Our Heroes hosted over 200 job fairs in 49 states. Through these fairs, over 14,000 veterans and military spouses landed jobs.
The goal this year is to host at least 400 job fairs in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
More than 40 employers will be in attendance at Wednesday's job fair.
To guarantee admission, please have your military ID and pre-register online at their website. Walk-ins are welcome, but space is limited.
