Job fair in SW Ohio aimed at military spouses
DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A job fair aimed at helping military spouses find employment will be held at a hotel at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in southwestern Ohio.
The Hiring Our Heroes organization is holding the fair and a networking event this week at the base near Dayton.
Hiring Our Heroes is a program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation. Foundation spokeswoman Kim Morton says the job fairs held across the United States and in Germany have secured jobs for more than 25,000 military spouses and veterans.
The events will feature free networking opportunities Wednesday night that also will be open to veterans and military service members. Morton says those attending the event will be able to meet local and national companies’ recruiters and receive resume help in advance of Thursday’s fair.
