Hello Alameda Employers & Recruiters,

 The USS Hornet Museum in Alameda is having a Veterans Job Fair on 11/10/16, from 10am to 3pm, and you are encouraged to sign-up to fulfill any of your staffing needs as well as show your support for veterans and military families.  There are tax benefits to hiring veterans, in addition to good will.

 Employer registration closes next week, October 28, so do sign up immediately.  Use this online form to sign-up: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/veterans-job-fair-employer-recruiter-registration-form-registration-28161702410. We are looking for a wide variety of industries so forward far and wide. Construction, tech industry, places who need drivers, health care (esp. home health care), education, you name it. Post on your business social media places that you are attending.  There is a special rate for Alameda businesses of just $150! Perks included in the booth fee are the opportunities to tour the ship and come back the next day (Veterans Day) for free with their registration form.

The link with all the info is here: www.uss-hornet.org/veteransjobfair.

 Your support of helping these veterans, active military and their spouses connect with a job is meaningful.  We now have a free shuttle service from College of Alameda to the ship to bring in even more jobseekers.  As the home of Naval Air Station Alameda for over half a century, having as many Alameda-based businesses participate in this Veterans Booth Fair is important and a strong sign of community spirit.

 Thank you for helping to make this a productive employment opportunity,
