As thousands of active duty military return to civilian life, it is vitally important that the skills, abilities, experience and leadership these men and women have in great abundance be utilized to the fullest extent possible. Not only are these Americans deserving of our support, they are qualified, capable and committed. American companies need their ethics, character, drive and dedication to keep them competitive globally. No other natural resource we are blessed with can do as much good for our nation.
August 2014 was the first Military Hiring Fair and first partnership between AFS and DBU. Results were phenomenal, with double the national placement of 18%+. Candidates were coached and prepared for the interviews and real jobs were offered. This Hiring Fair is anticipated to be even better as another “Coaching Day” has been added to even better prepare the candidates. Coaching sessions will be led by JPMorgan Chase and Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD) and 1:1 coaching will be available from Allies In Service and Dallas HR.
