Dozens of employers will participate in a job fair geared to service members.
The fifth annual “New Year, New Career,” is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday at the Hope Hotel and Conference Center, 10823 Chidlaw Road near Gate 12A off Ohio 444 in Fairborn.
About 50 employers including defense contractors to educational institutions to government and law enforcement agencies and various businesses are expected.
“It’s just a great opportunity for veterans to come out and actually meet company representatives (who) are intrigued by veterans and really want to hire (them),” said Kelley Koons, a veterans service specialist at the Military Veterans Resource Center in Dayton.
“We keep seeing added interest in the employer community,” she said.
The career fair is open to veterans, and active duty, National Guard and reserve service members and spouses and dependents, according to Koons.
Job seekers should bring a resume and be prepared to speak with potential employers, organizers said. Professionals will offer advice on resumes and interview skills, MVRC said.
