The annual Alaska Veterans and Military Spouses Job Fair will be held 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 7 at Hilton Anchorage Hotel, 500 W 3rd Ave.
“More than one in 10 Alaskans is a veteran – the greatest per capita population of veterans in the nation,” said Department of Labor Acting Commissioner Cathy Muñoz. “Alaska employers recognize the value veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses bring to the workplace but often find it challenging to find this job seeking population. That is why bridging this gap by connecting veterans and military spouses with reputable employers is extremely important to the Department of Labor and Workforce Development.”
This annual hiring event will have more than 100 employers, education, training and apprenticeship providers and is one of the largest hiring fairs in Alaska, connecting veterans, military spouses, and Alaska residents with employment and occupational training opportunities.
Employers represented include federal, state, and municipal employers along with representatives from the construction, healthcare, oil & gas, financial, and transportation industries.
The job fair is open to the public and there is no fee to attend. Job seekers are encouraged to dress for potential interviews and bring copies of resumes and business cards, the Department of Labor advised.
Free parking is provided for the job fair courtesy of EasyPark, for the duration of the event at Chinook Parking Lot, 225 E St.
