Heroes 4 Hire Veterans Career Fair Returns April 9 to Rentschler Field

The annual Heroes 4 Hire Veterans Career Fair is returning April 9 at the Pratt & Whitney Rentschler Field Ballroom in East Hartford. The veterans-focused event, to be held 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and now in its 15th year of connecting veterans and families to employment opportunities, is the largest of its kind in New England.

More than 80 employers and organizations have already registered for the event and will be looking to fill jobs or provide information about education programs, apprenticeship opportunities, job training, and employment services.

“Veterans bring what employers want most – dependability, accountability and leadership skills,” Westby notes. “When you hire a veteran, you add value to your business and make an impact in your community by investing in America’s heroes.”

Admission and parking is free and veterans and their spouses are encouraged to meet with a wide range of companies, service providers and educational institutions regarding employment opportunities and programs that serve veterans.

For companies and organizations interested in taking part, a $275 registration fee includes a skirted table, company sign listing in the event’s program guide, and advertising. The event typically attracts well over 600 veterans who offer a range of skills to fill jobs ranging from entry level to technical, sales, IT and management.

Employers can visit www.ctjobfairs.com to register online, while veterans interested in attending will find a complete list of participating companies and organizations on the site as the event draws closer.
