The Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce is collaborating with the U.S. Chamber for the 2011 “Hiring Our Heroes” event as part of a plan to help more veterans find employment. The job fair for veterans and their spouses will be held on March 24 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. Through its disabilityworks department, the Chamber is calling all employers with open positions to register for this important event. It will be moderated by Kevin Schmiegel, Vice President of the United States Chamber of Commerce. Schmiegel discusses the event with NBC-5 Chicago in the video above.
In 2009, at the request of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce launched this initiative to help wounded, ill, and injured veterans find meaningful employment. The U.S. Chamber has established strategic partnerships with several organizations, including the Chicagoland Chamber, to continue this important effort to help veterans and their spouses across the nation.
