MILWAUKEE – Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele and the Milwaukee County Veterans Service Office are happy to announce a job fair for Military Veterans on Thursday, October 3rd at the War Memorial Center from 9am- 1pm.

This is the 10th veterans job fair put on by Milwaukee County.

Seventy employers, from Aurora Health Care to We Energies, will be on hand, looking to hire veterans to fill hundreds of job openings. There will be free parking in the surface lot north of the War Memorial Center and across the street in the O’Donnell parking structure.

“The business community’s commitment to hiring veterans is a testament to the people of Milwaukee County and Wisconsin,” said County Executive Chris Abele. “At a time when jobs are hard to come by, we will continue to do what we can to help.”

The job fair is put on by the Milwaukee County Veterans Service Office (MCVSO), the Zablocki VA Medical Center and local representatives of WI DWD Office of Veterans Employment Services.

More than 500 veterans attended a similar job fair in March.
