Special guest, Aaron Demerson from the Texas Workforce Commission will launch the hiring fair after a brief ceremony with the Color Guard and remarks from local dignitaries and other representatives.

Over 75 Coastal Bend employers have registered for the Hiring Red, White & You! Hiring Fair looking to fill various positions in the 12-county region. Over the past 12 months, Workforce Solutions of the Coastal has provided priority service to 4,424 veterans which includes a two-day hold on all new job openings posted in the statewide online job database, www.workintexas.com.

Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend appreciates and values the service of our nation’s veterans and considers it a privilege to help them and their families enter or return to the workforce as quickly as possible.
