Pre-Register for Veteran Hiring Event

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Business

The Hiring Our Heroes – Chicago event, one of the largest efforts to help Veterans and their family members find employment, returns to Chicago on Wednesday, March 26. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs (IDVA) and Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES) are primary hosts. The event is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the University of Illinois Chicago Forum at 725 W. Roosevelt Road, Chicago.

Job seekers are encouraged to take advantage of a free employment workshop at 8:30 a.m. focusing on resume writing, job search techniques and interview skills. There also will be an Employer Lunch and Learn for attending recruiters who wish to enhance their military hiring initiatives. Veterans also should register with, the state’s hiring board operated by IDES. It uses the same matching philosophy as the Hiring Our Heroes events. No-cost HR recruitment services for employers and workers are available at the website and at (877) 342-7533.
