Attention CBA Business Community:

March 26, 2014

Good Afternoon Friends & Colleagues,

The state’s largest veteran hiring fair is back!  The 2014 Hiring Our Heroes Hiring Event is set for March 26 in Chicago, and we need to spread the word to any and all servicemembers, veterans, and military families who may be interested – please see the attached flyer.


10:00AM – 2:00PM on Wednesday, March 26
2014 Hiring Our Heroes – UIC Forum
Veterans Employment Fair
725 W. Roosevelt Road, Chicago, IL 60608

This is an extraordinary opportunity to facilitate the transition of veteran job-seekers into the civilian workforce by showcasing the unique capacities veterans bring to our businesses.

Sponsored by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs (IDVA), the Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES), the U.S. Department of Labor Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (DOL VETS), the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, and The American Legion, the Hiring Our Heroes program represents an extraordinary joint effort on the part of employers, nonprofits and civic organizations to create job opportunities for military veterans and their spouses through personalized engagement with corporate partners. 

This event – which utilizes an innovative model featuring candidate pre-screening, applicant-employer matching, and onsite interviews – will put over a 1,000 veteran job-seekers in interaction with over 100 registered employers.  In doing so, not only will veterans have a chance to showcase the skills, integrity, and discipline that set them apart from the average job-seeker, but employers will have a one-of-a-kind opportunity to review, recruit, and hire America’s future business leaders.  Also, this event is NO-COST for job seekers.


You can help by forwarding and promoting this opportunity to any and all that may be interested.

Advanced registration is strongly suggested for veterans and required for non-profit partners and businesses.  Please visit the Hiring Ours Heroes webpage for details and registration, otherwise contact Marcus Simonetti at 312-814-7204 or Marcus.Simonetti@illinois.gov in my office.

Thank you for your readiness to support our veterans.
