Recruiters & Career Services Providers:
The Philadelphia Inquirer, Daily News & philly.com are committed to putting our considerable reach and resources to work in an effort to help the veterans and their spouses of our region find the jobs they most desperately need, and deserve.
These men and women are some of the best trained, most dedicated leaders and teammates our nation has to offer – imagine what they could do for your company.
Salute the Troops in Our Community. Of the 315,000 veterans that call the Philadelphia area home, 10%, or 31,500, are below the age of 40. And they and their spouses need jobs.
With our reach in the region, our proven track record of successful career fairs, and the exclusive seminars that we have planned, this event is much more than a career fair. It’s a way to honor their service and provide them with the fresh start of the new career they need.
Hiring a veteran is the right thing to do, and it’s good for business. Here’s your opportunity to change the life of a hero, and save. Employers that hire military veterans get to take advantage of some very specific tax credits.
