South Sound veterans and service members can scope out the labor market Friday at a Hire America’s Heroes career day at Cheney Stadium in Tacoma.
The Seattle-based group aims to connect vets with work in the private sector once they’ve decided to leave the military. It’s bringing Alaska Airlines, Amazon, Boeing, Puget Sound Energy, Starbucks and a mix of other companies to the Tacoma baseball stadium.
The event is free to service members and early birds can pick up free tickets to Friday night’s Tacoma Rainiers game. You can register for the event here.
Hire America’s Heroes has hosted career training events for service members in Seattle and at Joint Base Lewis-McChord. Marjorie James, the group’s president, said people who attend Friday’s event will benefit from webinars on how to present themselves to employers. They can also have their interviews critiqued by career coaches.
