More than 100 employers are expected to participate with jobs available for veterans and military spouses of all ranks and levels of experience. Companies range from some of the biggest employers in the United States to dozens of smaller companies, many local.

The free event will include an employment workshop that features one-on-one mentoring sessions on resume-building, job-search tools and interviewing techniques.

The hiring fair goes from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and the workshop begins at 10 a.m. The South Towne Expo Center is located at 9575 S. State Street in Sandy.

Since Hiring Our Heroes began in March of 2011, more than 1,200 companies have hired 20,200 veterans and military spouses as a result of more than 620 hiring fairs such as this one. The goal is to hire a half a million by the end of 2014.

Those interested in attending should register at hoh.greatjob.net. Walk-in job seekers are allowed, but veterans must provide proof of service.

The Utah Veterans and Military Employment Coalition, the Utah Committee for Employer support of the Guard and Reserve, the Utah Department of Veterans Affairs, the Utah Department of Workforce Services, the Salt Lake Chamber of Commerce, the Ogden/Weber and Davis Chambers of Commerce, the Department of Labor’s Veterans Employment and Training Service, the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs and The American Legion are all partners.
