As part of the 100,000 jobs mission, a big hiring event is coming up in Dallas April 11.
The target market: veterans, guard and reserve members, and military spouses.
More than 70 employers are expected, including JP Morgan Chase, Amazon, Cisco, Delta, Freeport-McMoRan, GM, HP, Hyundai, Intel, IBM, Lockheed, Kroger, and Verizon.
Some companies plan to bring managers — some veterans themselves — ready to make offers on site. (That’s one reason they’re calling this a “hiring event” and not a “career fair” — as a way of saying “there’ll be hiring here, not just screening conversations.”)
The event’s at the convention center. Candidates can get all set up beforehand here.
