DEARBORN (WWJ) – The clock is ticking for veterans and employers to register for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Veterans Hiring Fair on April 11.

Interested job seekers and employers have until April 3rd to sign up for the fair taking place at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center in Dearborn. The event is a part of the U.S. Chamber’s 100-city “Hiring Our Heroes” initiative.

Launched in March 2011, the initiative focuses on helping veterans and military spouses to find meaningful employment. So far, more than 100 fairs have been held across the country, resulting in more than 9,000 veterans landing jobs.

Dearborn’s event is expected to be one of the largest fairs to date, with the planned goal of connecting over 90 employers with hundreds of local veterans in the area.
