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 our armed force veterans. Working as integral collaborators with Kent State, 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 force 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 spouse, may be eligible for through the Veterans Administration. Lastly, the fair will include targeted presentations regarding the “nuts and bolts” of job searching, interviewing, resume building, networking, building a LinkedIn profile, and how to maximize GI benefits.
The job fair will take place on Tuesday, April 28, 2015, at Kent State University at the Kent Student Center located in Risman Plaza. Fair hours will be from 10 am to 2 pm, with the veterans’ resource room being accessible as early as 9 am.
