Veterans invited to job fair
Veterans and their families are invited to attend a free Veterans Job and Benefits Fair on Wednesday, May 1, at the Tuality Education Center, 334 SE 8th Ave. in Hillsboro.
Forty Oregon businesses will be on hand to recruit prospective employees.
Kurt Carlsen of WorkSource Oregon Employment Department said veterans are a good choice for employers.
Veterans are a diverse group of individuals, but all were trained to make quick decisions, be on time, pay attention to details, and work individually and as a team, he explained.
The Veterans Administration, along with 20 other government and community-based agencies, will provide services and information as well as the opportunity to register with the VA for medical care and other benefits.
The event, which will run from 9 a.m. to noon, is a joint effort of WorkSource, the Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce and Washington County.
