Hiring Red, White & You!

The 2016 Hiring Red, White & You! job fair on November 10 at Minute Maid Park had 152 employers and 21 veterans service and training organizations participate. Additionally, the total number of attendee registrations doubled from last year.

 

Hiring Red, White & You! connects Texas veterans and their families with Texas employers who value the experience, discipline and other exceptional qualities inherent with a military background.

There are thousands of veterans in Texas who are eligible for work. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the national unemployment rate for all veterans is 6.3 percent. In contrast, for those veterans who served in the military post 9/11, the unemployment rate is 10.0 percent.

At Workforce Solutions, helping veterans and their families enter or return to the workforce is our privilege. We encourage all veterans looking for career guidance to visit a local Workforce Solutions career office prior to the event. We can help you assess how the skills you acquired in military service will fit in the Houston-Galveston area job market.
