“Hiring Our Heroes” in Beatrice

Many in the military come home from war only to find there's no work. On Wednesday, a job fair just for our unemployed Nebraska veterans will give them a chance to find work after service.  

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, January's unemployment rate for post 9/11 veterans is 11.7%, which is well above the national average at 7.9%.  The U.S. Chamber of Commerce's National Chamber Foundation along with multiple other organizations has been fighting to bring that number down since 2011 with the "Hiring Our Heroes" campaign.  

On Wednesday, veterans in our community can take advantage of a "Hiring Our Heroes" job fair in Beatrice.

"Hiring Our Heroes" said more than 30 different employers will be at the hiring fair.  The organization boasts more than 400 hiring fairs across the country and said they've helped more than 14,000 veterans and military spouses find jobs.  

If you're a vet or a veteran's spouse and you want to attend the "Hiring Our Heroes" job fair, you can register for free at hoh.greatjob.net.  Walk-in job seekers are also welcome and all veterans must bring a military I. D.
