Workforce Solutions Rural Capital Area to host veterans job fair
Veterans in the area will have the opportunity to seek job opportunities at the 8th annual Hiring Red, White & You! event. The event, hosted by the Workforce Solutions Rural Capital Area, will be held on Nov. 7 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Embassy Suites San Marcos Hotel Conference Center, located at 1001 E. McCarty Lane, San Marcos.
“Hiring Red, White & You! is a joint Texas Workforce Solutions initiative supported by all 28 workforce development boards, the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC), the Office of the Governor, the Texas Medical Center (TMC) and the Texas Veterans Commission (TVC), to connect veterans and their spouses in Texas with employers who recognize the experience, advanced skills and leadership abilities they bring to the workplace,” Workforce Solutions said in a press release. The free event will bring around 100 employers from the rural capita area, and participants are advised to come “dressed to impress and with plenty of copies of their resume for employers to review.”
“From heightened leadership and teamwork skills, to proven problem solving and decision-making ability, U.S. military veterans bring a wealth of wide-ranging strengths and talents t the workforce, that can be an asset to any Rural Capital Area business,” said WSRCA CEO Paul Fetcher. “It’s an honor for our board to host Hiring Red, White & You! events, to assist veterans with re-entering civilian life and finding sustainable employment opportunities that enhances their quality of life.”
