Veterans Encouraged to Attend June 16 Jobs Event Featuring 80+ Hiring Employers
10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at The Boulevard Mall, inside Main Mall Entrance
Goodwill of Southern Nevada will hold a major hiring event, featuring more than 80 employers actively hiring on Tuesday, June 16, 2015 at The Boulevard Mall, located at 3528 S. Maryland Parkway, Las Vegas, NV 89169. The event, sponsored by Bank of America, will take place near MundoFOX studios.
While the hiring event is open to the general public, veterans and immediate family members of veterans are strongly encouraged to attend. In addition to meeting employers face to face, veterans and other job seekers can sign up onsite for Goodwill’s no-cost job and placement services.
“This is not an ‘information only’ hiring event. Every single employer who will be at this event is currently hiring,” said Elizabeth McDaniels, Goodwill of Southern Nevada director of mission services. “In addition, many of these employers are actively looking to hire veterans because of their work ethic, dedication and experiences.”
Interviews will be done onsite for many of the open job positions. Job seekers should dress professionally, bring several copies of their resumes and reference information.
The hiring event is an extension of Goodwill of Southern Nevada’s Veteran Integration Program, or VIP, which offers specific job placement programs to veterans and their immediate family members, in addition to veteran employment specialists who can provide peer-to-peer assistance. This program was recently awarded Bank of America’s prestigious Neighborhood Builder grant of $200,000 to grow such vital services for veterans.
Since its inception in late 2012, Goodwill’s VIP has helped nearly 600 veterans and immediate family members secure employment in Southern Nevada.
