Last Thursday, we were very lucky to serve as one of the community partners for Hiring Our Heroes Phoenix. Staff on the ground reported that final numbers appeared to be roughly 800 – 1,000 job seekers – a great turnout!
We are deeply appreciative to the US Chamber of Commerce, Department of Labor Veterans Employment and Training (DOL VETS), the local chambers, the Arizona Ofﬁce for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), the Employer Partnership of the Armed Forces (EPAF), and the Arizona Department of Economic Security for all they did to help ensure a successful event! In addition, we wish to thank Congressman Paul Gosar, Congressman Trent Franks, Congressman David Schweikert and Senate President Russell Pearce for their opening remarks.
Of course, none of this would have been possible without the 120+ employers that chose to attend. Thank you for your support of America’s heroes!
