If you are a military veteran looking for employment, or want to learn about the many programs and services available for veterans, please join us at the Veterans Job and Services Fair, hosted by the County’s Office of Workforce Development.
This free event will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4 at American Legion Post 177, located at 17 Emerson St. in East Brunswick.
The fair will include potential employers, in addition to one-on-one resume assessment and review sessions, and training providers from in-demand occupations such as transportation, health care, information technology, hospitality and tourism.
The New Jersey Small Business Development Center will speak to attendees about entrepreneurship and business start-up resources.
There also will be information on housing and social services for veterans and their families, and a representative from the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development who works specifically with veterans will be available to offer information on employers’ benefits and tax credits.
Middlesex County Board of Social Services representatives will be on hand to discuss various public assistance programs.
“This is a great opportunity not only for veterans to find employment, but to learn about the many services that are available to them in Middlesex County,” said Freeholder Kenneth Armwood, chair of the County’s Business Development and Education Committee. “I hope many of our veterans and their families will attend.”
“Middlesex County is committed to caring for its veterans and getting them the help they need,” said Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios. “If you need assistance with employment, job training, or housing, this event has the information and resources that can help.”
Those who require transportation to the fair can call 732-745-3970 to make a reservation. Reservations must be made by Nov. 3.
