Veterans' Job Fair – Serving Those Who Have Served Us

The Division of Human Resources is pleased to partner with Career Services and the Center for Adult and Veteran Services to bring a unique job fair experience for U.S. Armed Forces veterans.

Working as integral collaborators with Kent State University are OhioMeans Jobs Portage County, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Portage County Veterans Service Commission and the Portage County Veterans Service Office. The “Serving Those Who Have Served Us” Veterans’ Job Fair is targeted to help and support Ohio's veterans, particularly unemployed and underemployed veterans of Portage and Summit counties. 

There are three areas of emphasis in this job fair, all aimed at creating an empowering experience for our veterans. First, we seek to create unique opportunities for veterans to speak with employers that have specific job openings and are interested in hiring Armed Forces veterans. Secondly, we aim to provide targeted resources for our attending veterans to assist them in getting connected with services and programs that they, or their spouses, may be eligible for through the Veterans Administration. Lastly, the fair will include targeted presentations regarding the “nuts and bolts” of job searching, interviewing, résumé building, networking, building a LinkedIn profile and how to maximize GI benefits. 

The job fair will take place on Tuesday, April 28, at the Kent Student Center. Fair hours will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., with the veterans’ resource room being accessible as early as 9 a.m.

Find more information, including a day at a glance, list of frequently asked questions and registration information. 

For questions, you may contact Angela Jackson or Rachel Rundo, human resources talent acquisition coordinators, at 330-672-2100 or email employment@kent.edu.
